COPY-Bielema fires back at criticism from Texas Tech's Kingsbury

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Bret Bielema says he was "shocked" by criticism from Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury following the Red Raiders' 35-24 win on Saturday.

The Arkansas coach also says he doesn't plan to talk anytime soon with Kingsbury, who delivered a sharp rebuke to what he said was Bielema's criticism of spread offenses at a Texas high school coaches' convention during the summer.

Bielema says he only intended to state his belief in his pro-style system when facing spread teams, noting he never mentioned Texas Tech specifically.

The loss to the Red Raiders was the second straight for the Razorbacks (1-2), who open Southeastern Conference play this week against No. 14 Texas A&M.
