Tim Tebow frequently wears eye black that references Bible verses. In last week's game against Florida State, his eye black said "Heb 12 1-2." This week he has written "John 16:33," referencing a passage from the Gospel of John from the New Testament.

John 16:33 reads:

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

No. 1-ranked Florida faces No. 2-ranked Alabama in a critical game today. The winner captures the SEC championship and will advance to the BCS National Championship Game for a shot at the college football national championship.
