The Tennessee Volunteers opened their season with a 38-7 win over Utah State Sunday at Neyland Stadium. The Vols dominated both sides of the ball, holding a 383-244 advantage in total yards and a 34:29-24:51 edge in time of possession.

Tennessee entered the game with several questions offensively. Was Justin Worley truly the best option at quarterback? How big of a role would the freshmen play? Would Marlin Lane or Jalen Hurd get more carries? How would the inexperienced offensive line hold up against a solid Utah State front seven? These questions were all answered Sunday as the Vols cruised to victory. Here’s how the Tennessee offense graded by position in its opening win:

Quarterback: Justin Worley had a career day against Utah State. The former high school player of the year proved why the Vols have so much invested in his arm this season. Worley went 27-of-38 for 273 yards and three touchdowns. The senior also completed 71 percent of his passes, an improvement for a quarterback that’s faced inconsistency through his career. Worley needs to continue this streak of success if Tennessee is going to be a true contender in the SEC. If he can consistently put together games like Sunday, the Vols’ offense will be a strong matchup for opposing defenses.

Grade: A

Running backs: Marlin Lane and Jalen Hurd split carries evenly at 11 attempts a piece. Lane held the advantage in rushing yards with 41 to Hurd’s 29. He also added a seven-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter. Hurd also found the end zone in his college debut, connecting with Worley on a 15-yard reception. The two backs combined for 70 yards on 22 carries for a 3.1 average. As a team, Tennessee rushed for 110 yards on 39 carries. The numbers aren’t stellar, but the rushing attack was solid enough to open up a strong passing game. Both Lane and Hurd will look stronger as the season progresses and Tennessee fans should remain optimistic of the duo’s potential as a two-back set.

Grade: B

Wide Receivers/Tight Ends: The Vols receivers combined for 273 yards on 28 receptions, averaging 9.0 yards per catch. Josh Smith led in yards with 48. Pig Howard had a team-best six receptions. Von Pearson and Brendan Downs each found the end zone for touchdowns. Worley did an excellent job spreading the ball as 11 different receivers caught passes, with eight having multiple receptions. This explains why no Vol receiver truly had breakout stats as the focus was on seeing what options the team has in the opening game. As a team, the Vols receivers were as good as advertised, living up to lofty preseason expectations.

Grade: A

Offensive Line: Tennessee was the only team in college football to replace its entire offensive and defensive line in 2014. The Vols had little to no prior experience in the trenches and were expected to struggle. Early game penalties were a concern as Tennessee was flagged five times in the first half. However, outside of an early 3rd quarter false start, the offensive line had a penalty-less second half to end the game. Pass blocking was excellent as Worley had time in the pocket to make plays and find receivers. However, the line needs to improve on run blocking as Lane and Hurd weren’t given enough openings to break big runs.

Grade: B
