FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino says his No. 12 Razorback team is prepared both mentally and physically to take on the No. 7 Tigers of Auburn on Saturday.

Petrino said after Thursday's practice session that he had liked what he's seen in practice this week.

He said he thinks the Arkansas players understand that the team has been working for 2 1/2 years to get itself in position to be a challenger on a national level.

Kickoiff for the nationally televised game between Arkansas (4-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) and the Tigers (6-0, 3-0) is set for 2:30 p.m.
