Tebow will make his debut on Jan. 6 at the 2013 VIZIO BCS National  Championship.

He will be a  significant contributor to the compelling content we will deliver with the SEC  Network,” said Justin Connolly, ESPN senior vice president, programming, college  networks. “Tim brings a wealth of knowledge about the game, the conference and  the passion among SEC fans.”
