(AP) NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vanderbilt coach Robbie Caldwell has named Larry Smith his starting quarterback for the season opener Saturday at home against Northwestern.
Smith, a junior, also was the starter last season, but the No. 1 spot was thrown open during preseason drills.
Smith beat out fifth-year senior Jared Funk, who enters the season No. 2, and junior college transfer Jordan Rodgers.
