KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Western Kentucky coach Bobby Petrino has had plenty of success at the expense of the Southeastern Conference.


Now he wants more.


Petrino went 34-17 at Arkansas from 2008-11. He was fired in April 2012 for misleading school officials about a motorcycle accident that eventually revealed his mistress was a passenger and employed by the coach. After a year away from coaching, Petrino is back.


Western Kentucky beat SEC program Kentucky 35-26 in Petrino's first game. The Hilltoppers will try to do it again Saturday when they visit Tennessee.


Tennessee, a 13-point favorite, is coming off a 45-0 victory over Austin Peay in which it scored touchdowns on each of its six first-half possessions.
