Florida wasn't completely perfect. Vandy linebacker Chris Marve stripped Percy Harvin of the ball near the goal line as the Gators tried to finish off their fifth possession with another TD in the second quarter. D.J. Moore intercepted a John Brantley pass with 3:45 left, giving the Gators a total of eight turnovers this season.
Harvin made up for the fumble by scoring on a 1-yard run on Florida's opening drive of the second half.
The Gators forced Vandy to punt with 1:33 left until halftime, and that was more than enough time for Tebow to move them 80 yards in seven plays for the big cushion.
Vanderbilt avoided the shutout when Chris Nickson replaced Mackenzi Adams, who suffered a neck pointer, for the second half.
Nickson drove the Commodores on drives of 81 and 87 yards. He capped the first with a 2-yard TD to Jamie Graham at the end of the third quarter, then tossed a 14-yarder to Sean Walker late in the fourth on a drive kept alive when Dunlap ran into Vandy punter Brett Upson.
