2006 USC 16 @Florida 17
My favorite game of all time. If I had the opportunity to witness any football game, I'd pick this one again.
The score screams defensive battle, but the two squads combined for 811 yards of offense. Chris Leak was perfect, and Chris Hetland was awful.
Ryan Succop, the SEC's best kicking talent was terrifying with a one point lead and only seconds remaining on the clock.
Then Jarvis Moss did it again. He blocked his second kick of the game and kept the SEC title hopes alive (and soon to be national champioship hopes).
Watch it. If you don't get goosebumps at :18 seconds in, you're not a Gator fan.
2008 Alabama 20 Florida 31
The more dramatic of the Gators' two 2008 title games featuring five lead changes and a Heisman worthy performance by Tebow.
Prior to this game the knock on Tebow was not his throwing mechanics or some other NFL–ish nitpicking, it was that Tebow couldn't come from behind to win.
Well, he managed just that in the fourth quarter of the SEC Championship, fully solidifying his status as a winner.
2005 Vandy 42 @Florida 49 OT
Sidenote: this remains the only Gators OT game I've seen in person, and it was worth every minute of excruciating "Oh crap we are going to lose to Vandy" pain.
Jay Cutler goes nuts in the fourth quarter, nearly pulling off a huge upset. I doubt more than 10 percent of the football watching public even realizes that Jay Cutler is a Vandy alum, but Gators fans remember it well.
The Gators managed to survive his three-TD fourth quarter, which put the game into overtime, and pulled out the victory in the second OT.
2004 @Florida State 13 Florida 21
Zook's farewell will live on in infamy for Seminoles as he desecrated the newly christened Bobby Bowden Field with a Gators win.
The Gators would go on to get smoked by Miami in the Peach Bowl leaving the Gators 7–5 and solidifying the decision to fire Zook, but no matter how late his shining moment came it still shone brightly.
2006 Ohio State 14 Florida 41
This wasn't a good game, and certainly the 2008 championship is more deserving for it's on field drama, but the 2006 championship put the questions over the Gators' coaching choice to rest permanently while setting the team down it's current path.
Yes, this is the game that started it all, and turned the 2000s from a potentially disappointing decade to the best one yet.
