Alabama cancels home and home with Michigan State

Posted: Updated:

Alabama has reached out to Michigan State and canceled the 2016-2017 home and home series.

The expansion of the SEC to 14 teams has caused several unanswered scheduling questions. The SEC could soon play 9 conference games compared to the 8 game conference slate that's in place now. If the SEC switches over to a 9 game schedule it would force each SEC team to only play 3 non-conference games.

Here's a Statement from Alabama Athletics Director Bill Battle:

 "Michigan State graciously granted our request to cancel the games previously scheduled for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. We made the request due to the uncertainty of the conference football schedule in those years. We are very appreciative of Michigan State's willingness to grant that request."

 -Bill Battle, Director of Athletics, University of Alabama
