NEW ORLEANS — Tim Tebow was named the most valuable player of the Sugar Bowl in 2010.

The former NFL quarterback-turned-professional-baseball-player played for the Florida Gators against the Cincinnati Bearcats. He shared his thoughts ahead of the Texas Longhorns' Sugar Bowl appearance against the Georgia Bulldogs.

“I think Georgia is one of the top three teams in the country,” Tebow said. “I think they should've been in the college football playoffs.”
