Petrino sees opportunity against top-ranked Gators

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Bobby Petrino will try something different this week: coaching against the nation's No. 1 team.

In over five years as a college head coach at Arkansas and Louisville, he's never faced a top-ranked team, but next up on the Razorbacks' schedule is a trip to play No. 1 Florida on Saturday.

Petrino says the Hogs "know what's at stake" and won't need much motivation.

Arkansas lost 38-7 to the Gators at home last year, but the Razorbacks are confident after beating Auburn last weekend.
