Petrino has SEC fun at Big Ten's expense

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Bobby Petrino has never shied away from

talk of winning a national championship at Arkansas.

The Razorbacks coach believes the Southeastern Conference

provides the perfect springboard and the SEC has won the last five

BCS titles.

Petrino was asked Monday what Arkansas' blueprint is for winning

the school's first championship since 1964.

Seeing a bunch of fans in the room, he had a little fun at the

expense of the Big Ten: "We need to get to Atlanta and win the SEC

championship game. And then history shows that you go to a national

championship bowl game and draw one of those slow schools from the

north and you beat them."
