Weather Alert

CODE YELLOW: Heavy Rains Expected Overnight

A few showers could pop-up around the mid-state this afternoon, but our Microcast model shows the heaviest rain to arrive in Nashville around 3am. Areas to the west of the city will see it sooner and areas to the east will see it later.  Some storms could be strong with gusty winds and heavy pockets of rain.  A few left-over showers could hang around as late as Friday night, so area high school football games might be wet.

Vols beat Utah State in season opener, 38-7

Updated: Sunday, August 31 2014, 10:06 PM CDT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Justin Worley threw for 273 yards and three touchdowns to help Tennessee beat Utah State 38-7 on Sunday night in a game matching two quarterbacks returning from injuries that ended their 2013 seasons prematurely.

Worley completed his first 13 passes of the second half in his first appearance since missing Tennessee's final five games last season with an injured right thumb. He was 27 of 38 overall, connecting with 10 difference receivers.

Worley threw touchdown passes to Brendan Downs, Von Pearson and Jalen Hurd, and his 27 completions was a career high.

Worley outperformed Utah State star Chuckie Keeton, who was playing for the first time since tearing the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee last October. Keeton went 18 of 35 for 144 yards with two interceptions and one touchdown pass.
