CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Purely by the numbers, Virginia Tech had some of the best offensive input it could have asked for.
Senior quarterback Logan Thomas passed former Hokie Bryan Randall on the school's career touchdown pass after a pair of touchdown passes. And redshirt freshman wide receiver Joshua Stanford had one of the most prolific receiving days in Virginia Tech history with 171 of the Hokies' 391 total yards.
But in a 34-27 loss at Boston College, it was again mistakes that did in Virginia Tech. And they again came courtesy of Thomas. In two games, Thomas now has eight turnovers. And three of those resulted in 17 Eagles points.
Thomas doesn't seem to concerned, saying again that aside from the mistakes, he felt like he played well. Maybe so, but those mistakes were the difference and negated much of the positives.
Like last week, the good news is that the Hokies can still win the coastal division. But unlike last week, they now need both Miami and Duke to lose at least once in order to overtake them. It's made what once looked like a matchup of two top 10 teams in Miami next week, look like just any game.
