GAINESVILLE -- Tennessee coach Butch Jones reopened UTs quarterback competition this week between former starter Justin Worley, a junior, and redshirt freshman Nathan Peterman. Floridas defense will be ready for either signal caller.
We have our game plan, and we talk to our guys about what the difference may be in the two of them, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. We have limited film on Peterman, but we kind of know what to expect from him. Hes a little more of a running [quarterback].
• Offensive coordinator Brent Pease took the blame for Floridas failed fourth-down conversion in the loss to Miami on Sept.7. Pease said the quarterback sneak was something I shouldnt have done.
I knew what they were probably going to go to [defensively]. I put our guys in a tough spot, he said.
The failed conversion was among Floridas five empty possessions inside Miamis 28-yard line.
