Alabama athletic director Bill Battle said Thursday the school made the request because of "the uncertainty of the conference football schedule in those years."

The Southeastern Conference hasn't ruled out a move to a nine-game league schedule since the expansion to 14 teams.

The games would have pitted Alabama coach Nick Saban against his former school. He was Michigan State's head coach from 1995-99.
