Justin Worley has one last chance to capture a win against Florida. The senior looks to accomplish a feat that eluded several preceding quarterbacks, even the great Peyton Manning. So it’ll take more than some soreness to keep the senior out of Saturday’s game.

“[My elbow] is a little sore. It’s a typical bruise,” Worley¬†said. “Little bit of discomfort when I throw, but nothing major. I should be 100% by Saturday.”

Worley is no stranger to the Tennessee-Florida rivalry. He understands how important a win against the Gators would be given the Vols’ nine-year losing streak.

“You can feel the tension in the air, everybody knows it’s Florida week on Twitter,” he said. “It’s Florida hate week, everyone knows that, and you can tell that. We’ve just got to take it as the next game in our long journey.”

Worley will wear a padded sleeve to prevent further injury to his throwing elbow, but he says it will not affect his ability to attack Florida’s secondary.

“You can feel the tension in the air, everybody knows it’s Florida week on Twitter,” he said. “It’s Florida hate week, everyone knows that, and you can tell that. We’ve just got to take it as the next game in our long journey.”

The senior quarterback says he would love to be the quarterback that ends Tennessee’s losing streak against Florida. A win would secure Worley’s place among the all-time greats of Volunteer folklore.

“It would be huge,” he said. “I think we’ve been searching for that win, and we might have been pressing for that win. I think we just need to go out there and play our game, not worry about what’s happened in the past between these two teams, and just go out there and execute.”
