NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason has named Patton Robinette as his starting quarterback a week before the Commodores' season opener against Temple.

Mason announced his decision Thursday night.

Robinette, the only quarterback with any starting experience at Vanderbilt, beat out Johnny McCrary and Steven Rivers, the younger brother of Philip who's quarterback for the NFL's San Diego Chargers. The Commodores started fall practice with six quarterbacks competing.

Mason says Robinette has shown consistent improvement and called it a difficult decision.

Robinette, who redshirted in 2012, played in 10 games last season. He started in a loss at Texas A&M, Vandy's first win in Gainesville against Florida since 1945 and the bowl win. He also helped beat Georgia and Tennessee.
