Instant Analysis: Hokies Over Heels

We thought senior quarterback Logan Thomas looked stellar early on at Georgia Tech last week. He didn't complete his first nine passes today, like he did against the Yellow Jackets, but Thomas might have looked as good as he has in the past two seasons.

With a run game that was again anemic, Thomas took to the air again. He completed 19 of 28 passes for 293 yards, three touchdowns and just as importantly, no interceptions in Virginia Tech's 27-17 win over North Carolina.

Thomas made the right reads and with the help of what turned out to be a few good playcalls, a few right on the money passes. That included an 83-yard strike to junior wide receiver Willie Byrn in the second quarter that led to five-yard touchdown pass to senior D.J. Coles. By that point, the Hokies had the game well in hand.

It was also a game in which Virginia Tech took advantage of a lack of execution and discipline by the Tar Heels. North Carolina was whistled 11 times for penalties that totaled 79 yards.

Despite allowing a season-high 376 yards, Virginia Tech also came through with some big plays on defense, with interceptions by Kyshoen Jarrett and Kyle Fuller and a fumble recovery by Chase Williams on a muffed kick return.

The Hokies were by no means dominant. But they again played more disciplined and avoided that mistakes that befell their opponent.
