Virginia Tech Hokie's quarterback Logan Thomas is one of the best dual-threat QBs in the country, not just the ACC. He's one of just six quarterbacks who threw and rushed for double-digit touchdowns last season, according to cfbstats.com.
Thomas threw for over 3,000 yards and 19 touchdowns last year while rushing the ball 153 times for 469 yards and 11 TDs—earning the QB spot on the All-ACC second team.
His 11 rushing touchdowns set a school record for rushing TDs by a quarterback in one season, according to ESPN's Heather Dinich. He also broke Tyrod Taylor's total offense record set in 2010.
Last year, the Tigers traveled to Blacksburg, VA to face Thomas and the Hokies—a game which Clemson dominated, winning 23-3. In that contest, Thomas threw for just 125 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.
Obviously, the then-sophomore was upset with his performance. However, the Hokies got a chance at redemption when they faced the Tigers in the ACC Championship game in Charlotte.
While Thomas performed better than the first game—274 yards with one TD and two interceptions—the Tigers defeated Virginia Tech 38-10.
After two embarrassing losses at the hands of Clemson last season, Thomas will surely be eager to perform his best when the Hokies head to Death Valley in Week 8 of this season.
The game falls on the heels of a bye Week for the Tigers—giving the team plenty of time to prepare for the Hokies, Thomas in particular. And they're going to need every minute of preparation they can get.
