Virginia Tech's comeback rolls over Duke, 41-20

Posted:

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Logan Thomas threw two touchdown passes, J.C Coleman ran for 183 yards and two long touchdowns, and Virginia Tech (4-3, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) fell behind 20-0, then buried the Blue Devils 41-20 on Saturday afternoon.

Duke (5-2, 2-1) arrived seeking one more victory to become bowl eligible for the first time since 1994. The Blue Devils gained 150 yards in the first quarter but 84 in the next two quarters as Virginia Tech's defense came alive, intercepting Sean Renfree twice and harassing him throughout the second half.

Thomas hit Marcus Davis with touchdown passes of 42 and 47 yards, and hit Davis with a 40-yarder to set up another touchdown. Martin Scales scored that one on a 4-yard run, and J.C. Coleman broke free for a 45-yard scoring run.

Coleman's touchdown gave the Hokies their first lead at 24-20, and had an 86-yard burst midway through the fourth quarter.
