Coming off a seven-overtime victory, Arkansas made sure that last night's game would be a 60-minute one. The host Razorbacks, behind three touchdown passes from Matt Jones and a 51-yard touchdown run by DeCori Birmingham, defeated South Carolina, 28-6, in Little Rock. Arkansas improved to 6-3 and 3-3 in the Southeastern Conference. Lou Holtz's South Carolina team is 5-5 and 2-5. Neither team is in contention for the SEC title, but both teams have bowl aspirations. Jones didn't start, but the junior signal-caller entered on the second series.

Bobby Petrino resigned as Atlanta Falcons coach yesterday, having lasted only 13 games, and last night was announced as the football coach at the University of Arkansas. Petrino succeeds Houston Nutt, who stepped down at Arkansas 2 weeks ago and became the head coach at Mississippi. "The timing of it probably the think that made it most difficult," he said. "Coming to Arkansas was the easy part. " In January, Petrino left as coach at Louisville to take over in Atlanta, agreeing to a 5-year, $24 million contract handed out by a team that felt he could help Michael Vick reach his full potential.

If Arkansas basketball were a natural disaster, it would be a tidal wave. Once the Razorbacks start heading for the beach, the only safe place is several miles inland. The red-clad zanies descended upon Reunion Arena, the place Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson used to call "Barnhill South," in a mood to party. Nothing that happened after they threw the ball up to start the Midwest Region semifinal against Tulsa changed their mood. It wasn't exactly "40 minutes of hell. " That would have been overkill on a night when Arkansas shot 60.6 percent in the first half, 72.4 percent in the second half and a season-high 66.1 percent overall and won last night, 103-84.

The Daily News sports section is nothing if not versatile. We file reports on athletic events. Analyze what happened. Express opinions. Sometimes we even influence the outcome. We're talking power. Yesterday at Franklin Field, after anchoring Arkansas to a world-best time of 9:20.10 in the Penn Relays college men's distance medley relay Championship of America, Joe Falcon wanted to feed someone a heaping plate of another bird. Crow. An analysis in Friday's editions predicted a DMR victory for Mount St. Mary's.

The sluggish Democratic presidential campaign picked up momentum yesterday as Gov. Bill Clinton of Arkansas, a leader of the moderate wing of his party, announced that he was officially forming an exploratory committee, a preliminary step to a formal declaration of candidacy. "I want to make it clear that I have not made a decision as to whether to seek the nomination," Clinton said in a statement issued by his office in Little Rock. "But forming an exploratory committee will give me a means to look into this in a lot more detail and get the kind of information I need to consider it right now. " Clinton said he would make up his mind by the end of September.

The University of Arkansas suspended five players yesterday, including three athletes identified in a rape complaint that did not result in charges, for violating unspecified team rules. Coach John Pelphrey said guards Courtney Fortson, the top returning scorer, and starter Stefan Welsh were suspended indefinitely. Guard Marcus Britt was suspended for six games, forward Glenn Bryant two games, and walk-on guard Nick Mason will not dress for games during the fall semester. The school did not provide specific reasons for the suspensions, which will keep all players out of Friday night's season opener against Alcorn State.

The Rose Bowl, it wasn't. To John Robinson, though, it was almost as sweet. Two years after he arrived to take over a hapless bunch of losers, Robinson's UNLV Rebels (8-5) beat Arkansas (6-6) last night, 31-14, in the hometown Las Vegas Bowl. Fans who didn't go near the UNLV stadium when the team was in the midst of a 16-game losing streak tore down a goal post as UNLV celebrated its turnaround in two seasons under Robinson. "I'm not the guy who did this," Robinson said, pointing to his players.

Jet lag caught up with Nevada-Las Vegas. Tarik Wallace and Pat Bradley combined for 21 points early in the second half as Arkansas opened an 11-point lead and went on to an 86-73 victory over the visiting Runnin' Rebels in the quarterfinals of the National Invitation Tournament. UNLV beat Hawaii Monday night in overtime, then headed for Arkansas at 1:15 a.m. The school could not get all the players on one plane, so some flew to Dallas and others to Houston. Eventually, they met in Tulsa, Okla.

A bruised and tired Corliss Williamson, who led Arkansas to the last two NCAA title games and the 1994 national championship, is headed for the NBA. The 6-foot-7 junior forward, who averaged 19.7 points as the Razorbacks went 32-7 this past season, had said after Monday's championship game loss to UCLA that he planned to stay in school. "My emotions took over and made me say that," Williamson explained yesterday. "I didn't end my college career the way I wanted to. I wanted to go out on top with a victory.

The Arkansas Razorbacks used up their luck right before halftime last night. From then on, the Hogs relied on their furious charms. They unleashed just enough to bump North Carolina out of the Final Four. After a sleepy first half, and a miracle shot at the halftime buzzer, the Razorbacks started grabbing passes all over the court, Tar Heels passes, and won, 75-68, surviving some late missed free throws. Arkansas moves into tomorrow night's championship game against UCLA at the Kingdome because the Razorbacks held North Carolina without a basket for 12 1/ 2 minutes.

Quarterbacks and running backs always grab the spotlight in football. But watch out for wide receivers in South Jersey in 2014. Several top athletes are projected to return at that position and could turn next season into a showcase for their receiving and running-after-the-catch skills. Among the top players next season could be Paul VI junior Irvin Charles, who could be one of the state's top recruits in the class of 2015. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Charles has offers from Mississippi, Virginia, Indiana, Boston College, Rutgers, Pitt, and Temple, among others.

HARRISBURG Corbett administration officials expressed hope Monday that the federal government's approval of Arkansas' unique plan to expand Medicaid coverage for low-income residents was a positive sign that a similar Pennsylvania plan also would pass federal muster. The Department of Health and Human Services late last week signed off on Arkansas' proposal to provide health insurance coverage to 200,000 lower-income residents by using Medicaid dollars for private insurance. Gov. Corbett had announced 10 days earlier that he would seek a similar route to providing health coverage for more than a half-million uninsured residents of Pennsylvania, but he has yet to submit a formal waiver seeking approval.

Former President Bill Clinton called Tuesday for state governments to use the recent economic crisis as a teachable moment and consider overhauling their budgeting processes. Clinton gave the keynote address at a symposium on federalism at the National Constitution Center on Tuesday afternoon. Drawing on his 12-year tenure as governor of Arkansas, Clinton argued that budget shortfalls in capitals across the country highlight the need to question the fiscal relationship among the federal, state, and local governments.

FORMER AUBURN point guard Varez Ward has been arrested for allegedly trying to fix games and offering money to teammates to help during the 2011-12 season. U.S. Attorney George Beck Jr. said that Ward was arrested Monday on counts of bribery relating to a sports contest and conspiracy for allegedly trying to fix the point spread for the Tigers' game against Arkansas on Jan. 25, 2012. A federal grand jury indictment last week of Ward was unsealed yesterday in Montgomery, Ala. The document did not list alleged co-conspirators but said the scheme continued after that game.

Fire routs N.M. residents PECOS, N.M. - As firefighters gained ground Friday on a wildfire in the mountains north of Los Angeles, a fast-moving fire in New Mexico's Santa Fe National Forest prompted evacuations, threatened cabins and vacation homes, and closed a highway. Officials asked residents in 140 homes - mostly used for the summer - to evacuate as crews battled the 1.6-square-mile blaze near the communities of Pecos and Tres Lagunas, about 25 miles west of Santa Fe. They also evacuated campgrounds and closed trailheads as they worked on containment lines.

The Hall of Fame trainer hopes to once again capture an important race at the park on Saturday, when he sends out favorite War Academy in theĀ $1 million Arkansas Derby. A Baffert-trained colt, Bodemeister, won the Kentucky Derby prep race last year, and the Californian guided horses to three straight wins at Oaklawn's Rebel Stakes before D. Wayne Lukas' Will Take Charge snapped that streak last month.

The pitchers share a home state and agent. Smyly is trying to crack the Detroit Tigers' rotation and thought any time spent with Lee would help.
