DESTIN, Fla. (AP) - Alabama coach Nick Saban has a strong - and seemingly solitary - stance on the Southeastern Conference potentially moving to a nine-game league schedule.

Saban says he would like to see the SEC expand from eight to nine games, an opinion that surely will draw debate and dissent during the league's annual spring meetings this week.

Saban is the only SEC coach to publicly call for increasing the number of league games. SEC presidents and chancellors could vote on the topic Friday.

Saban says he's ``absolutely in the minority, but everybody has their reasons.''

Having won three of the last four Bowl Championship Series national title games, Saban admits he should be against changing the current model.

Others are, including Georgia's Mark Richt, Vanderbilt's James Franklin and Mississippi's Hugh Freeze.
