Florida head coach Will Muschamp told the media Tuesday that he wants to avoid playing teams from the Football Championship Subdivision. Per ESPN:

Speaking at the Southeastern Conference's annual spring meetings Tuesday, Muschamp said he would prefer a 12-game schedule that features eight league teams, in-state rival Florida State and three more teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision.

"We're probably going to move forward without playing FCS opponents," Muschamp said, noting that his reasoning primarily has to do with getting his team in the best position to make the college football playoff that begins next season.

"And I think our fan base wants to see better opponents," he added.

Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley had this to say about Muschamp's comments:

"I understand what Will's saying, In a perfect world, you play all D-I schools. But also you have to have 12 opponents."
