(Newser) – Florida defeated top-ranked Alabama today by taking over the fourth quarter of the SEC Championship game and winning 31-20, the Gainesville Sun reports. Tim Tebow (a repeat Heisman winner?) led the Gators with three touchdown throws, one to Riley Cooper to seal the game in the final minutes. Florida will now play in the BCS title game for the second time in three years, while the Crimson Tide heads for the Sugar Bowl, the AP reports.
