We all know the Tyler Bray story by now, but to a Vols fan, it never gets old. Bray was a gunslinger last year, putting up huge numbers in his five starts (1,537 yds, 14 TDs, seven INTs), breaking the freshman record for passing yards.
While he is knocked for mostly facing subpar competition, he looked just as sharp against one of the nation's best defenses in the Music City Bowl against North Carolina. He completed 27 of 45 for 312 yards, giving him a completion percentage of 60 (his highest as a starter).
He also threw four touchdowns and three interceptions (the last one coming in the second overtime).
Although the SEC quarterback of the moment is Aaron Murray, expect that to change once the season gets going.
Bray will come out this season a little more reserved, working on better accuracy and not just monster yardage, but he will continue leading the Vols to victory and prove himself to be the best quarterback in the SEC. He just might grab All-American honors along the way.
