Tennessee’s preseason quarterback battle has come to a close, and Butch Jones named senior Justin Worley the starter.

Worley won the job over returners Josh Dobbs and Nathan Peterman, and Worley has thrown for 1,977 yards and 11 touchdowns, compared to 13 INTs in three seasons. He has the most experience of any of the quarterbacks, and we projected Worley to win the job.

Tennessee opens up the season on Sunday, August 31st, against Utah State.
