Tennessee football podcast: Evaluating the Vols’ gamble of playing two quarterbacks

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee coach Butch Jones has declined to name a starting quarterback, but he said the Vols have a pretty good idea who will be taking the first step.

Tennessee opens the season at 8 p.m. next Monday against Georgia Tech at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

Junior Quinten Dormady had the better spring game, going 10-for-10 passing for 120 yards with two touchdowns, but redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano has shown his skills in the fall.

Dormady, because he does have game experience, is the favorite to win the starting job.

Jones and quarterbacks coach Mike Canales have hinted that Tennessee will play two quarterbacks.

Mike Griffith and WNML’s Josh Ward discuss the gamble the Vols have taken by working two quarterbacks throughout fall drills and splitting repetitions, in terms of how it affects continuity and consistency.
