Nov. 23: Western Kentucky at Texas State

Two former Southeastern Conference coaches meet again in San Marcos. First-year Western Kentucky coach Bobby Petrino is trying to resurrect his career with the Hilltoppers after a sex scandal at Arkansas cost him his job last spring. Meanwhile, Dennis Franchione is in his second stint at Texas State, where he coached the Panthers from 1990-91. He also spent the 2001-02 seasons at Alabama, where he coached against Petrino when he was offensive coordinator at state rival Auburn. Franchione's ties to Texas (he previously coached at TCU and Texas A&M) should help with recruiting in the Lone Star State.
