Week 9 SEC attendance figures: Gators legends on hand to see the Dawgs fall again
Things boded well from the outset for Florida before the start of the Gators’ annual showdown with rival Georgia.
How can you lose when you have three former Heisman Trophy and national championship winners there for support?
That was the case at EverBank Field on Saturday as Tim Tebow, Danny Wuerffel and Steve Spurrier gathered on the set of the SEC Network to talk about the game.
Tebow works as on-air personality for SEC Network, but later changed into more comfortable clothes (bottom) before making his way to the Gators’ sideline.

Florida easily won, 24-10, before a crowd of 84,681 to extend its mastery over the Dawgs to three consecutive games.
The Gators and Dawgs didn’t draw the largest crowd, however. That honor went to Texas A&M, which just missed on another 100,000 crowd.
Here are the Week 9 attendance figures in the SEC:
