    VT- 21
    GT- 14

    The Hokies are able to hold off the Yellow Jackets and walk away with a season opening win. It wasn't pretty and at times the Hokies seemed to play a little nervous on offense especially on 3rd down going 3/9. Logan Thomas had the play of the day as he shook off a defender and hit a streaking EL SMiling for 69yd TD. Thomas finished the day 13/21 212yds 2 TD 1 INT. RB Michael Holmes debut was respectful with 83yds TD. Smiling was the target of choice finishing the day with 136yds 2 TD.

    The highly touted defense didn't live up to the hype today as it couldn't solve the triple option of GT giving up 275yds of offense. Daid SIms was the lead man for the Yellow Jackets with 127yds. GT was also able to convert 4/4 4th down conversions in their late comeback attmept only to run out of time.

    This matchup has produced the winner of the Coastal division since the ACC expanded to 12 teams, so if VT can improve after this win teh same should be expected.

    VT- 26
    LSU-0

    The Hokies defense showed the nation a glimpse of what it is capable of completely dominating the #1 ranked Tigers of LSU. VT held the LSU offense to only 79yards of offense, recorded 10 sacks, and forced 1 turnover. DE James Gayle was a force providing constant pressure with a team high 5 sacks. The offense chipped away at the LSU defense and was lead by an effeciant day from QB Logan Thomas who finished with 18/21 227yds 2 TD, with one lone INT as his only blemish to a perfect day. RB Michael Holmes lead alll rushers with 42yds. If the offense and defense can both show up the only team in the Hokies way are themselves.​

    Va Tech- 34
    Duke- 9

    In front of their entire recruiting board the Hokies showed why Blacksburg is a great place to call home. VT bpunced back from their dissapointing loss to UNC with an impressive showing on both sides of the ball against the Blue Devils. Logan Thomas had a career day throwing for 361yds 1 TD with his lone INT as his only mistake of the day. WR Marcus Davis finally had his break out day with 12 rec 117yds. RB Michael Holmes was sidelined early on, but Tony Gregory filled in with a productive 56yds on 11 carries with a TD.

    The defense continued to show its dominance frustating the Duke offense. Outside of a 56yd TD burst by RB Desmond Scott, the Blue Devils struggled to move the ball. DE James Gayle added 2 more sacks to his team high 10.5 for the year. The Hokies hit the heart of their schedule starting with a trip to Clemson next week.​

    The Hokies opened up theri offense and were lead by QB Logan Thomas who accounted for 413 total yds and 5 TD on offense. RB' s Holmes and Gregory combined for 62yds TD on the ground. WR Fuller lead the wideouts with 80yds TD. The defense continued to wreak havoc on the opposing QB frustrating Clemson's Boyd all game. Huge user game next week with Big 12 vs ACC challenge title up for grabs....​

    Blacksburg, VA

    Oklahoma 26 VT 21

    The game was scheduled for last night but due to inclement weather (actually my kids not participating in bedtime at all) the game was rescheduled for anytime Hokie felt was good. The game was then scheduled early in the morning and it looked as if Oklahoma hadn't even woke up. VT drove the ball confidently down the field for the score to quickly make it 7-0 Oklahoma then had a chance to show what they could do on offense and promptly threw a pick 6 to a swarming VT defense.

    This could have easily been game over but Oklahoma behind backup RB R. Finch were able to pound the ball and then break a big run against a VT defense that has been super solid vs. the run all season. From that point on Oklahoma started to assert their will on the Hokies and would step up themselves on defense. In total Oklahoma gave the ball up on 1 int and 1 poor option read but VT could not solve the OU pass defense and threw 5 picks for the game which was the main story. Trailing by 13 VT was not ready to give up they drove for a TD to cut it to 6 and forced a punt with very little time on the clock. A desperation heave was short of the goal line and the Sooners escaped with a win and as an added bonus gave the conference challenge to the Big 12. It looks as if the Sooners if things fall right for them can still compete for a Big 12 title with some huge match ups still left. National Title hopes may be a stretch but were the goal going into the season so they will still hold out hope for that as well.

    Coach Bennett was interviewed after the game. "I have so much respect for Hokie Effect we have been longtime friends and have met numerous times on the field. It is always a pleasure to play him and I look forward to many more battles in the future!"

    VT- 49
    Miami- 7

    The Hokies played their first complete game and this is even more suprising after their poor showing a week before. Logan Thomas bounced back with a 273yd 1 TD passing and 65yd rushing performance. Thomas still threw 2 INT's and he really needs to work on taking care of the ball if VT still once a shot at an ACC title. Michael Holmes made the endzone his second home with 4 TD from 95yd rushing. Thomas was able to spread the ball around as 7 different players has a reception. The D gave Miami problems all day, holding them to 74yds of offense while putting pressure on the QB all day. Big user conference game next week vs FSU.

    VT- 24
    FSU- 14

    This was a defensive struggle to start as neither teams offense could get it going as they entered halftime with scoreless tie. The Hokies would take advantage of several FSU turnovers and build a lead that they would not let go. Thomas threw for 208yds but had 3 first half INT's. Thomas added 37yds TD on the ground. Michael Holmes ran for a game high 113yds 2 TD. A tune up game against Boston College next week, then a season deciding matchup against in state rival UVA with the winner moving onto the ACC title game.​

    UVA- 38

    We disconnected with maybe 5mins left in the 4th with VT up 41-31. Cougs let me finish against the cpu.

    The Hokies season came down to 1 game as teh Coastal division was up for grabs and if that was motivation enough their in state rival was undefeated and ranked #1. Logan Thomas who has been a turnover machine this season played flawless 19/25 422yds 4 TD and added 25yds 1 TD on the ground. Michael Holmes ran for 98yds to keep the offense balance, but the game ball might have to go to Marcus Davis. Davis hauled in 7 receptions for 214yds including 2 70+ TD catches. Va Tech's offense was a well oiled machine today with 554yds 7/10 on 3rd down and not having to line up to punt all day. This type of production was needed as UVA matched VT punch for punch with 525yds of offense with 520yds of it from the air as the Cavaliers only attempted 5 runnings plays with little success, but 2 INT's seemed to be the difference. GG Cougs, until next season.....​
