GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Will Muschamp has been on both sidelines of the Florida-Georgia rivalry. He's only experienced one side of it, though: the losing end.
Florida's head coach went 0-4 as a player at Georgia, dropping all four meetings between 1991 and 1994. He's 0-2 with the Gators, losing both games in similar, turnover-filled fashion.
His next chance at a victory comes Saturday, when the Gators (4-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) and Bulldogs (4-3, 3-2) meet in nearby Jacksonville for the 78th time in the last 81 years.
Muschamp made it clear this week that being winless in the series these days carries far more weight than going 0-for-ever two decades ago.
He says "none of it is fun. ... We need to get a win."
