The quarterback battle at Tennessee seems to be over.
Worley had been in a competition with redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman and true freshmen Riley Ferguson and Josh Dobbs. Of the four quarterbacks in the competition, only Worley has ever seen time on the field for the Vols.
He's seen time in nine games over the last two seasons while backing up Tyler Bray, throwing for 738 yards, a touchdown and five interceptions while completing 57% of his passes.
Unfortunately for Worley, he'll only have a couple games to get his feet wet before things get real. While Tennessee starts the season with Austin Peay and Western Kentucky, those two games are followed by Oregon, at Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and at Alabama. That's five games in a row against teams currently ranked in the top ten, as well as five of the best defenses in the country.
So it's going to be a baptism by fire in Knoxville.
