Saban weighs in on SEC conference schedule

DESTIN, FL (WAFF) -

The SEC meeting is starting to take shape in Destin, Florida, and before they even got going, Nick Saban weighed in on a popular topic - the thought of going to a nine game conference schedule.

Georgia coach Mark Richt said he only wants to see the Auburn/Georgia series continue.

Tuesday afternoon, Saban said he's in favor of the change. He said he's "absolutely in the minority, but everybody has their reasons."

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.

    Cloud cover has been persistent through the morning, but those clouds should start breaking up this afternoon. While we have been slow to warm under cloudy skies, highs should still push into the mid-70s with more sunshine late. ?
