Bobby Petrino is no longer unemployed. Petrino, who was fired at Arkansas on April 10, will be announced as Western Kentucky's coach today at 4 p.m., according to multiple reports. Arkansas fired Petrino with cause following a review of the coach's relationship with staff employee Jessica Dorrell and his efforts to mislead the university about hiring her over 150-plus other applicants and paying her a $20,000 cash.

Ranking The Red Wolves: Shoring Up Special Teams A Must Against Hilltoppers

by 9/27/2012 1:00 pm

There has been little margin of error in recent meetings between Western Kentucky and Arkansas State. Only nine points separate the two schools in their previous three meetings. In 2011 the Red Wolves left Bowling Green, Ky. with a 26-22 victory. A year earlier the Hilltoppers escaped Jonesboro with a one-point victory. ASU won 24-20 in 2009 at WKU. Because of that, special teams play could be critical when the two programs meet on Saturday.
