MIAMI (AP) — Tim Tebow is giving the winless Miami Dolphins a welcome boost in ticket sales.

Tebow will make his first start of the season Sunday when the Denver Broncos play at Miami, and Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said he’s optimistic the game will be a sellout.

More than 10,000 tickets have been sold since Tebow was promoted to the starting job last week, Dee said Wednesday.

Because of Tebow’s popularity, much of the crowd might be rooting for the visitors. A sizeable turnout of Florida Gators fans is likely because the Dolphins will pay tribute at halftime to Tebow and the rest of the 2008 Gators national championship team.
