VIRGINIA TECH 37, GEORGIA TECH 26

THOMAS (Kevin C. Cox)
Virginia Tech’s  6’6”, 250 lbs. quarterback isn’t getting bigger with each game, but you’ll be hard pressed to convince George Tech of that.  What the yellow Jackets do know is that Thomas, who accounted for five touchdowns in last night’s Hokie victory, is most certainly getting better.

Thomas had 209 yards pass and three touchdowns from seven completions out of a mere thirteen attempts. More importantly, he ran for 70 yards and turned the garden-variety quarterback sneak play into a game changing weapon.

Thomas, whose QB rating for the game was a whopping 265, made two critical first downs and a touchdown utilizing the sneak.  His longest rush from scrimmage (12 yards) was a keeper which gave Virginia Tech the second-half lead they never relinquished.

WILSON (Kevin C. Cox)
Too compliment Thomas, David Wilson rushed for a career-best 175 yards as the #10 Hokies (9-1, 5-1 ACC) eliminated Georgia Tech (7-3, 4-3) from the Coastal Division race.  It was Wilson’s  seventh straight 100-yard game, the longest streak of Frank Beamer's quarter-century as coach.

The teams went back and forth through the second and third quarters, scoring on eight of nine possessions in one stretch. But the Hokies took advantage of a huge personal foul on Jeremiah Attaochu and a fourth-down gamble by Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson from his own 31-yard line that didn't pay off.
