|THOMAS (Kevin C. Cox)|
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.
