Like in their other 3 SEC victories, the Gators fell behind in the first half, allowing an LSU touchdown drive after a Kestahn Moore fumble on the opening drive. After the Tigers muffed on a Gator punt a drive later, reserve freshman QB Tim Tebow scored on a QB sneak from one yard out to tie the game.

The Tigers scored early, taking the opening drive to the Gators' 5-yard-line before being forced to kick a field goal. The Gators responded with a field goal and, in the second quarter, a touchdown pass from Chris Leak to Dallas Baker to take the lead, 7-3. After kicking their first field goal of the season to take a 10-3 lead, the Gators seemingly averted danger when they stripped the ball from the Tigers at the goal line. One play later, however, a Jim Tartt holding penalty in the end zone forced a safety, giving Auburn the ball back and 2 points. The Gators strengthened their lead to 17-5 on a Tim Tebow run.

The Gators threatened to take the lead midway through the fourth until a Chris Leak fumble—which Florida tried to challenge as his arm appeared to be going forward on replay—gave Auburn the ball.

As the Gators came into their annual rivalry game with Georgia, they were heavily favored. Florida scored on their first possession of the game, moving the ball very effectively with a blend of running and passing. Wide receiver Andre Caldwell capped off the drive with a 12 yard touchdown run off a reverse. Florida's defense, which had been touted as one of the best in the SEC, lived up to their billing, stifling the Georgia offense for the entire first half. The Gators added another touchdown before halftime, when Chris Leak threw a 40 yard touchdown pass to Andre Caldwell for his second touchdown of the game. Florida's defense again came up huge in the 2nd half, when on the first play of the half, Georgia tailback Kregg Lumpkin fumbled the ball and defensive tackle Ray McDonald recovered the fumble and returned it for a touchdown, giving the Gators a commanding 21-0 lead. Florida's defense continued to stifle Georgia throughout the 2nd half, until late in the third quarter. After a Chris Leak interception, true freshman quarterback Matthew Stafford led the Bulldogs to a touchdown which he capped off on a 13 yard touchdown run off a quarterback draw, cutting the deficit to 14. Florida's offense was stuffed on the following drive but got a muffed punt by Georgia to regain the ball. However, Florida was unable to capitalize on the turnover, as Chris Hetland again missed a field goal. Georgia was unable to score on the following drive, but freshman Tim Tebow fumbled on Florida's 10 yard line to give Georgia a shot at drawing within 7. On 3rd down from the 5, running back Kregg Lumpkin took a draw play and fought his way for a Georgia touchdown to bring the Bulldogs to within 7. The Gators and the Bulldogs traded possessions, with the Gators getting the ball back with a little over 3 minutes in the game. Florida needed a first down on 3rd and 5 to seal their victory and elected to give Andre Caldwell a carry off a reverse. The play was stopped well short, but Georgia was called for a controversial face mask penalty which gave Florida a first down. Running back DeShawn Wynn, who saw limited action in the game, was able to pick up another first down to seal Florida's seventh win of the season.

In a thrilling game, the Gators blocked an extra point, and a potential game winning 48 yard field goal was blocked with only eight seconds remaining in the game. Leading the Gators on offense was Chris Leak, who with 258 yards passing in the game, eclipsed Danny Wuerffel as the All-Time passing yards leader in Gators history. DeShawn Wynn added 86 yards on the ground to help the Gators maintain a steady attack. Freshman Tim Tebow continued his strong season, rushing for a 13 yard touchdown which proved to be the game winning score. Tebow also converted a critical fourth down play inside Gator territory. Kicker Chris Hetland continued to struggle, missing a 28 yard field goal. He did, however, kick a 22 yard field goal.

The third ranked Gators had little trouble disposing of lowly 1-AA Western Carolina. Chris Leak, who played in his final game at The Swamp, played in the first half, going 9-12 for 98 yards and one touchdown. Freshman sensation Tim Tebow took over for the majority of the second half, going 10-12 passing, for 200 yards, and two touchdowns. Tebow added two touchdowns rushing along with 47 yards. The Gators used the game to give young players some playing time. A slough of freshman played, including Jarred Fayson, who saw time at quarterback and wide receiver. Riley Cooper, yet another freshman, added three receiving touchdowns in the game. Perhaps the most impressive freshman on the day however, was Mon Williams, who rushed for 97 yards on only 9 carries. Brandon James also added a 77 yard touchdown from a punt return. Overall, the Gators finished with more points(62) than the Catamounts had yards(59).

The fourth ranked Gators took on the eighth ranked Arkansas Razorbacks in the 2006 SEC Championship Game. Both teams were looking to end their respective SEC Championship droughts, with Florida having not won the title since 2000, and the Razorbacks losing in their previous two title game appearances. The Gators came into the game favored by three points. Both teams traded three and outs before Florida exploded in the second quarter. Up 3-0, Chris Leak was called for a rare quarterback draw which he converted by fighting into the endzone, giving the Gators a 10-0 lead. On the next Florida drive, Leak found game MVP Percy Harvin on a perfectly thrown 37-yard touchdown pass. However, the Razorbacks came back with a touchdown of their own.

On the next offensive series, Gators quarterback Chris Leak was intercepted on an attempted shovel pass which was returned by Antwain Robinson for a touchdown, giving the Razorbacks a stunning 21-17 lead. Florida regained the ball, but was stuffed by the Arkansas defense. Coach Urban Meyer decided to run a fake punt on his own 15-yard line, which proved to be a good call, as receiver Jemalle Cornelius scampered for a 16-yard gain. Even with this swing of momentum, the Gators were unable to capitalize and elected to punt from midfield. The momentum changed yet again, this time in Florida's favor.

Coach Urban Meyer, who was coaching in his first national championship game, took a timeout to compose his team after the horrendous start. It appeared to work, as senior Chris Leak came out on fire, going 5-5 on the first drive of the game.[6] Leak found three different receivers on the drive, which culminated with a perfect lob pass to fellow senior Dallas Baker.

The Buckeyes then got their first offensive possession of the game. Led by Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith, the Buckeye offense was widely considered to be the best offense in college football. The Gators, however, had one of the top defenses in the nation. The Gators blitzed Smith a number of times on the first drive, leading to a three and out, forcing Ohio State to punt. Troy Smith (born July 20, 1984 in Columbus, Ohio) is a former starting quarterback for The Ohio State University football team from 2004-2006, and the winner of the 2006 Heisman Trophy. ...


Florida had great field position, following a personal foul penalty on Ohio State. Chris Leak led the Gators back on the field, starting from the Ohio State 35 yard line. Florida again used a variety of offensive looks to keep the Ohio State defense off balance, which also included using freshman phenom Tim Tebow as a power rusher. On second down and goal, from the Ohio State four yard line, Florida ran an option play, in which Chris Leak pitched the ball to freshman star Percy Harvin who fought his way in for a four yard touchdown. Harvin appeared to be down at the one yard line, but after further review, it was determined that Harvin did reach the endzone. The score gave the Gators a surprising 14-7 lead. Timothy R. Timmy Tebow (born August 14, 1987) is an American football quarterback for the Florida Gators. ...


The Buckeyes came back on their next possession, trailing by a touchdown. Still, the Gator defense managed to put quarterback Troy Smith under heavy pressure. On third down, following a sack, the Gators blitzed, hit Smith as he threw the ball, and cornerback Reggie Lewis intercepted the pass.


Following the interception, the Gators continued to use unorthodox formations and plays to keep Ohio State off balance. Chris Leak remained extremely sharp, going four of five passing on the drive, for 44 yards. On the Ohio State 7 yard line, Tim Tebow came into the game and powered his way to the Buckeye 2 yard line. On the following play, running back DeShawn Wynn rumbled in for a two yard touchdown, giving the Gators a stunning 21-7 lead.


The Buckeyes however, remained composed. Using their power running game, and a 13 yard scramble from Troy Smith, the Buckeyes drove to the Gators' 18 yard line. Tailback Antonio Pittman weaved through the Gators' defense on the next play, for an 18 yard touchdown run, pulling the Buckeyes to within a touchdown.


Florida moved the ball with some success on their next possession, but were held for the first time all night by the Ohio State defense, forcing a Florida punt. Troy Smith and the Buckeyes marched back on the field, hoping to tie the game. However, Florida's stifling defensive line continued to put heavy pressure on Smith, forcing bad throws and incompletions, ultimately leading to a three and out.


The Gators got the football back, hoping to restore their two touchdown lead. Florida did move the ball successfully, but was unable to move the ball inside the redzone. Much to the displeasure of many Gator fans, Florida elected to send kicker Chris Hetland on to attempt a 40 yard field goal. Hetland had missed 9 of 13 attempts on the season, but split the uprights, giving the Gators a 24-14 lead.


Ohio State was now in a deep hole, trailing by ten with 6 minutes to go in the half. The Buckeyes attempted to establish a power running game with Antonio Pittman and Chris Wells, but the Gator defense was up to the task. In perhaps one of the most stunning decisions of the game, Buckeyes coach Jim Tressel decided to go for it on fourth and 1 from his own 29. The decision backfired, and Chris Wells was stopped short of the first down, giving the Gators great field position.


With the swing in momentum, the Gators were again unable to score a touchdown and settled for another Chris Hetland 40 yard field goal, pushing the Gator lead to 27-14. The game changed for good, on the next Ohio State possession. Under extreme pressure yet again, Troy Smith attempted to scramble outside of the pocket, but was caught by defensive end and special teams hero Jarvis Moss, who stripped Smith of the football. Defensive game MVP Derrick Harvey recovered the fumble and returned it for 9 yards, to the Ohio State five yard line. After two Tim Tebow runs up the middle, Florida faced a third down and goal on the Ohio State one yard line. Florida used a timeout to draw up a play for Tebow, who remained in the game. Tebow faked his usual quarterback run up the middle, ran left and flipped an easy one yard touchdown pass to a wide open Andre Caldwell. This score gave the Gators a shocking 34-14 halftime lead.

Leading 34-14 heading into the third quarter, the Gators appeared to be conservative on offense, which resulted in a quick three and out on the first possession of the half. The Gator defense, however, remained their brilliant play, in suffocating Troy Smith and pressuring him relentlessly and forcing him into bad decisions. The teams traded three and outs, and punts, throughout the third quarter, which gave the Gators a 20 point lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Fifteen minutes from a national championship, the Gators were determined not to have a defensive lapse, like many had so often seen under former coach Ron Zook.

Faced with a fourth and 1 on the Ohio State 1 yard line, many fans knew what was coming. Tim Tebow was again brought into the game and powered his way off the right side for a touchdown, giving the Gators a commanding 41-14 lead. Timothy R.

Troy Smith continued to have the worst game of his Buckeye career, as he was sacked for a 14 yard loss on the drive, putting Ohio State into a 3rd and 29 hole. Ohio State ran a draw play on 3rd down, and punted on the following play.


With 8 minutes remaining in the game, the Gators were determined to end the game and give the school a national championship. DeShawn Wynn, who was in Urban Meyer's doghouse early in Meyer's tenure at Florida, carried the ball 8 times on the drive, picking up several key first downs to keep the clock running. However, Wynn was stopped on a 3rd and 8 play, for only 2 yards. Coach Urban Meyer elected to go for it, and Chris Leak passed to Percy Harvin, who barely made the first down. Knowing this had sealed the win, Meyer began pumping his fist, and gesturing the Florida crowd to get noisy. Chris Leak took a final knee on fourth down, ending his illustrious career as a Gator on top of the college football world. Leak would later be named the game's most valuable player.
