KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — With the season opener now just two weeks away, Tennessee coach Butch Jones has picked a starting quarterback and as expected, the nod goes to senior Justin Worley.

Worley started seven games last season for the Vols, going 4-and-3, throwing for 1200 yards and 10 touchdowns before missing the rest of the season with a thumb injury.

Worley beat out both Joshua Dobbs and Nathan Peterman to earn the start in UT’s season opener against Utah State.
