(AP) - West Virginia has asked Florida State
about getting out of its Sept. 8 football game in Tallahassee.
West Virginia officials initiated talks a few months ago because
of its pending move to the Big 12. Florida State wants to play the
game and honor its commitment for a return date in 2013 at
Florida State athletic director Randy Spetman said Friday he
hopes West Virginia changes its mind since the game shapes up as
one of the marquee contests early next season. Both schools won
bowl games and are likely to be highly ranked going into 2012.
West Virginia athletic director Oliver Luck didn't immediately
return a message from The Associated Press.
