NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Bobby Petrino expects his only year in the Sun Belt Conference to be a memorable one, and not just because it's his first year back in coaching after a humbling one-year haitus.
Petrino says he also expects to win as he makes a comeback from his firing at Arkansas amid an extra-marital scandal in April 2012. The Western Kentucky team he has taken over went to its first bowl game last year and now seeks a league title in what will be the Hilltoppers last Sun Belt campaign before moving to Conference USA in 2014.
WKU has been picked fourth in a preseason poll of Sun Belt coaches on Monday, but most of the coaches agree any of the top four teams have a good chance to win the league.
