University of Tennessee head coach Butch Jones announced Thursday that Justin Worley is the Volunteers starting quarterback.

 

 

Whether Worley will be the starter when Tennessee comes to Norman to face the Sooners on Sept. 13 is another question. Worley battled consistency and injury as a junior and didn’t appear in Tennessee’s final four games.

Worley, a 6-foot-4, 224-pound senior, led the Vols in passing in 2013 with 1,239 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He completed 55.6 percent of his passes (109-of-196). He hails from Rock Hill, S.C., and attended the same high school as Oklahoma State freshman quarterback Mason Rudolph.

The Sooners and Volunteers begin their home-and-home series this season, with OU traveling to Knoxville in 2015.
