Tennessee coach Derek Dooley says freshman quarterback Justin Worley will start Saturday's game against South Carolina. Worley made his first appearance of the season in the fourth quarter in the Volunteers' 37-6 loss at Alabama and did not attempt a pass. The Rock Hill, S.C., native was Tennessee's third-string quarterback behind sophomore Tyler Bray and senior Matt Simms until Bray broke his right thumb on Oct. 8 against Georgia. Simms was a combined 14 of 37 for 186 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in starts against No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama. Dooley says he's making the switch in an effort to ''win some football games.'' Tennessee (3-3, 0-4 Southeastern Conference) has been outscored a combined 95-25 in three straight losses.
