LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — In one scary moment for Tim Tebow, another Florida laugher turned into the Gators' worst fear.

Tebow was knocked out of Florida's 41-7 victory against Kentucky after taking a hard shot to the head in the third quarter.

The Gators were leading 31-7 and driving deep in Kentucky territory when Tebow was sacked by Kentucky defensive end Taylor Wyndham. As he fell back with Wyndham on top of him, Tebow's head struck teammate Marcus Gilbert's leg, violently bending his neck forward.

Tebow lay motionless for several minutes while Commonwealth Stadium fell silent. He sat up with some help then slowly made his way off the field to a loud ovation. He was eventually carted off the field with concussion-like symptoms, vomiting several times as he was taken to an ambulance to a local hospital for tests.

"I don't know, I think it's a concussion," Florida coach Urban Meyer said. "I think he'll be all right."

The win extended Florida's winning streak to 14 games, tops in the nation as the Gators (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) continued their mastery over the Wildcats (2-1, 0-1). Florida has won 23 straight in the series, the second longest active winning streak by one team over another in the country.



No. 11 Virginia Tech 31, No. 9 Miami 7

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia Tech harassed Jacory Harris and dominated Miami in a downpour on Saturday.

Miami, ranked in the top 10 for the first since 2005, had a chance to take a commanding lead in the ACC's Coastal Division. Instead, Virginia Tech (3-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), Miami's third consecutive ranked opponent, cooled of the Hurricanes.

Miami (2-1, 2-1) had given Harris all kinds of time in beating Florida State and Georgia Tech to start 2-0. The Hurricanes had a lot more trouble keeping the Hokies' pass rush off their star.
