Latest Logan Thomas Items
Trey Edmunds took a short pass 26 yards for a first-half touchdown and Eric Kristensen kicked three field goals as Virginia Tech beat Virginia for the 10th consecutive time, 16-6, on Saturday night.
The loss damaged Virginia Tech's chance of playing for the ACC championship. The Hokies started the game knowing if they beat Maryland and then Virginia next week, and if Duke lost one of its three remaining games, they would win the Coastal Division and a spot in the championship game.
Trey Edmunds had scoring runs of 10, 2, 4 and 1 yards for the Hokies (7-3, 4-2 ACC). Logan Thomas completed 25 of 31 passes for 366 yards, giving him consecutive games of 300 yards or more for the first time in his Virginia Tech career, and the Hokies dominated in all sorts of categories.
Thomas has turned the ball over four times in each of the Hokies' last two games, a home loss against Duke and a road setback at Boston College. The redshirt senior threw four interceptions against the Blue Devils and two more, along with two fumbles, last week.
Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas completed 24 of 41 passes for 391 yards and two TDs, but was picked off twice and fumbled twice, leading to 17 of Boston College's points.
Virginia Tech coughed up four interceptions in varied and comical fashion, converted just 4 of 18 third down attempts and missed a pair of field goals. And could not possibly have won. Perhaps that best explains how the Hokies finally got burned in a humiliating 13-10 loss to Duke after playing with fire all season.
The Blue Devils (6-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a ranked team for the first time since they stopped No. 13 Virginia in 1994, and beat one on the road for the first time since Stanford in 1971.
The Hokies (6-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) rose three spots to No. 16 in their week off and will put their six-game winning streak on the line Saturday against the Blue Devils (5-2, 1-2) at Lane Stadium.
Logan Thomas threw an early touchdown pass, Cody Journell kicked four field goals and Virginia Tech sacked Pittsburgh's Tom Savage eight times in a 19-9 victory on Saturday, sending the Hokies into their off week on a six-game winning streak.
