GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Despite the worst loss in school history and the first losing season in more than three decades, Florida coach Will Muschamp doesn't feel like he has a rebuilding project on his hands.

Muschamp, who will return in 2014, says winning the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division and getting to Atlanta is "absolutely" possible next season.

It sounds a little ambitious for a team that has dropped six consecutive games - the program's longest losing streak since 1979 - and is coming off a 26-20 loss to lower-division Georgia Southern.

But Muschamp insists that's how he feels about his Gators (4-7), who finish the season Saturday against No. 2 Florida State (11-0).

He says, "I don't believe we're that far off."
