Just play home-and-home

That Alabama-Florida State football game may not happen.

Right now, FSU only has four scheduled home games in 2007, so the school wants to count the contest in Jacksonville, Fla., as a home game. That would give the broadcast rights to ABC, which would be a big problem for the SEC, whose television contracts award CBS first dibs on neutral-site games.

A home-and-home series would clear up the confusion, but Alabama athletics director Mal Moore says scheduling constraints mean the Crimson Tide wouldn't get a return game until years later, which doesn't much matter to me as long as FSU eventually comes to the Capstone.
