What A Difference A Week Makes

Last week against Clemson, Virginia Tech’s offense was terribly ineffective.  Yesterday, against Miami, QB Logan Thomas played brilliantly. Go figure.  What a difference a week makes...


That said, while Virginia Tech's offense was much improved, Miami’s offense put on a show against the Hokies vaunted defense.  The combined stats read like 100 yard volleyball.
The Hokies and Canes combined for 73 points at 1,001 yards.  That’s not a misprint, that’s 1,001 YARDS!
Jacory Harris was 13 for 21 for 267 yards and three touchdowns.  His battery mate, running back Lamar Miller shredded, and we do mean SHREDDED, the Hokies defense for 166 yards and a touchdown.  Miller averaged 9.2 yards PER CARRY.

As good as that one-two punch was, the Hokies were better. Logan Thomas came back from one of the worst  games of his life and completed 23 of 25 passes.  He had more touchdown passes (3) than he had incomplete passes (2).  He threw for 310 yards.  Against Clemson, he threw for 125 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.
Six ball carriers toted the pigskin for Virginia Tech for a total of 172 yards.  David Wilson had 128 of those yards. 
Like the Michigan victory over Notre Dame earlier this season, thirty five points were scored in the fourth quarter – actually, 35 points in 13 minutes.
