[October 06, 2008]  FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Tim Tebow threw two touchdown passes, and Jeffrey Demps ran for 103 yards and two long TDs to help No. 12 Florida beat Arkansas 38-7 Saturday.

HardwareThe Gators led 17-7 late in the third quarter when Jerry Franklin picked off Tebow, snapping the Heisman Trophy winner's streak at 203 passes without an interception. The Florida defense held though, and Tebow came back to lead his team on an 83-yard drive that ended with his 21-yard touchdown pass to Percy Harvin.

Chris Rainey then scored on a 75-yard run, spinning past a tackler and outrunning everyone to the end zone to make it 31-7. Demps completed the scoring with a 48-yard run with 1:04 remaining.

The Gators (4-1, 2-1) might be snapping out of their funk in time to host LSU next weekend in a huge Southeastern Conference matchup. Florida was upset by Mississippi 31-30 last weekend.
