(ESPN) – Florida coach Dan Mullen said whether his team can reach the College Football Playoff with two losses is ultimately out of his control, but that didn’t stop him from projecting confidence heading into a showdown with No. 1 Alabama in the SEC championship game.

“We’ll think about that on Saturday night after we win,” Mullen said Thursday of the potential debate.

Florida is coming off a home loss to unranked LSU last weekend, but the Gators dropped only one spot to No. 7 in the CFP rankings.

“I think it showed respect for us and for this league, the quality of the opponents in this league, the grind and the demand of playing,” Mullen said of the ranking. “This is our 11th SEC game in a season. I think that’s certainly a challenge. Other conferences haven’t been through that.”
