It’s always interesting to see which Bible verse devout Christian and Heisman-enthusiast Tim Tebow chooses to inscribe on his eye black.

Today, the Florida Gators quarterback has gone with John 16:33 for the SEC Championship Game against Alabama.

It reads:

I have told you these
things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will
trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Thus far, the Crimson Tide offense has overcome the Gators’ defense in building an early 9-0 lead in Atlanta.
