Logan Thomas ran 19 yards for a touchdown with 56 seconds to play Saturday, capping a wild fourth quarter as No. 21 Virginia Tech beat Miami 38-35. The Hokies (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) rescued their chances of contending in the Coastal Division with the dramatic rally, and may have killed the hopes for Miami (2-3, 0-2). And they did it less than 2 minutes after Lamar Miller scored on a 30-yard burst for the Hurricanes, giving them a 35-31 lead and forcing Thomas and the Hokies to respond. Thomas did, with a big assist from David Wilson, driving the Hokies 77 yards in eight plays, and capping the drive with a draw play on which he went virtually untouched for the score.

Hokies' Thomas strong against Hurricanes

Logan Thomas made the plays in leading Virginia Tech to a victory against Miami, something that he didn't happen a week earlier in a loss to Clemson. Perhaps now fans of the No. 19 Hokies (5-1, 1-1 ACC) will relax. Except for a pair of fumbles on botched snaps, one of which he recovered himself, Thomas was almost perfect in Virginia Tech's 38-35 victory against Miami on...

VA Tech vs. Miami–Offense Shows Up

A week after not scoring a touchdown at home against Clemson, the Hokies offense took the field inspired and determined to make a statement.  Miami (2-3, 0-2) is a team in transition, but they came to play and gave Frank Beamer’s team a fight. The hero of the game was Logan Thomas, the Hokie QB who had been the goat after the Clemson game.  A week ago Thomas struggled to throw...

Canes Fall To Hokies In Final Minute

BLACKSBURG, VA — Hurricane fans thought that once Tyrod Taylor left Virginia Tech and Christian Ponder left FSU they wouldn’t have to worry about being tortured by mobile quarterbacks. Miami, meet Logan Thomas. Thomas, who had been playing the role of understudy to Taylor for the previous two seasons, called his own number on fourth-and-1 and put the Hokies up for good. Trailing...

Virginia Tech 38, Miami 35

Bullet points because that's all I'm capable of right now. Well, that happened. Miami's coaches made great adjustments at the half and started gashing an under-manned and under-sized Virginia Tech offensive line, but in the end Logan Thomas had an impeccable game and made the big play at the end that gave them the win. Thomas, after his worst game, had his...

Hokies hope to avoid rough start

Thirteen months ago, Virginia Tech found itself with its back against the wall coming off an 0-2 start to the season that included a loss to FCS member James Madison. The Hokies rebounded with an 11-game winning streak before falling to Stanford in the Orange Bowl. This week, Frank Beamer's squad again finds itself in another rough spot, but on the surface the Hokies don'...
