Virginia Tech Defeats Georgia Tech

Posted:

ATLANTA (AP) -- Logan Thomas passed and ran for touchdowns in the first half, Virginia Tech's defense shut down Georgia Tech's running game and the Hokies beat the Yellow Jackets 17-10 on Thursday night.

Thomas completed 19 of 25 passes for 221 yards and a touchdown and had 16 carries for 58 yards and a touchdown. Virginia Tech (4-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) earned its fourth straight win over Georgia Tech (3-1, 2-1).

Virginia Tech's defense, led by defensive tackle Derrick Hopkins, stopped running back David Sims on back-to-back plays, including a fourth-and-2 run midway through the fourth quarter.

Cody Journell was wide left on a 25-yard field goal for Virginia Tech with 5:37 remaining to keep Georgia Tech's hopes alive. Kendall Fuller intercepted Vad Lee's fourth-down pass from near midfield to clinch the win.

Georgia Tech's fourth-ranked rushing offense was held to 129 yards -- more than 200 yards below its average.
