Billed as a "play-in" game for the BCS National Championship, the SEC Championship in Atlanta was one of the most anticipated games of the 2008 college football season. No.1 Alabama came in with an undefeated record, while the No. 2 Gators had just one loss on their schedule. The Crimson Tide held a three-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, but the Gators came out on top thanks to the extraordinary play of quarterback Tim Tebow, who threw for 216 yards and three touchdowns. Florida went on to win its second national championship in three years.
