TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State has finally found a 12th game to replace West Virginia on its 2012 football schedule.

Athletic Director Randy Spetman said Wednesday that Savannah State from the Football Championship Subdivision would visit Tallahassee on Sept. 8 as a replacement opponent for the Mountaineers, who broke a home-and-home contract with the Seminoles to ostensibly accommodate its move from the Big East Conference to the Big 12.

Savannah State finished 1-10 last season and was outscored by an average of nearly 31 points in its losses. The Seminoles now have two smaller-division FCS schools on their schedule; they host Murray State on Sept. 1.

Florida State plans to sue West Virginia for the amounts specified in the contract plus unspecified damages that could run into at least a couple million dollars.
