The Crimson Tide asked to cancel the football games scheduled for 2016 and 2017.
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.
