Florida Begins Stretch That Could Define Season

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Florida coach Will Muschamp calls every game a must-win. Following a lopsided loss at Alabama, it's really starting to look and feel that way for Muschamp and the Gators.

Florida's season and Muschamp's future could be decided in the next month.

The Gators play four games over the next five weeks that should determine whether they're back in the Eastern Division race or in the market for a new coach. It begins Saturday at Southeastern Conference rival Tennessee, which is a slight favorite despite losing nine consecutive games in the series.

Running back Matt Jones says "to go in there and beat Tennessee is going to be good."

It would be a much-needed confidence boost for a program that had a scare against Kentucky and was thumped 42-21 at Alabama.
