FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Even without former coach Bobby Petrino, expectations haven't changed this season at Arkansas.

The Razorbacks, under new coach John L. Smith following Petrino's firing in April, have their eyes set on competing for the school's first Southeastern Conference championship since entering the league in 1992.

Arkansas, which is 21-5 over the last two seasons, is led by a pair of Heisman Trophy hopefuls in quarterback Tyler Wilson and running back Knile Davis.

The Razorbacks' only losses last season were to national champion Alabama and runner-up LSU, and they face both at home this season.

The opener comes Sept. 1 at home against Jacksonville State.
