Despite a sluggish start, the No. 15 Virginia Tech Hokies defeated the Austin Peay Governors 42-7 on Saturday.
While the outcome of the game was never in doubt, it did provide the Hokies many areas in which to improve as they face a struggling Pittsburgh team on the road next Saturday.
The Hokies finished the game with 421 total yards of offense. Logan Thomas passed for 212 yards and two touchdowns. For the second straight game, Thomas finished with no turnovers.
One encouraging sign for the Hokies was the 189 rushing yards and 4.9 yards per carry. This game was intended for the Hokies to gain some cohesion and find the right mix along the offensive line. Although the leading rusher was wide receiver Marcus Davis, who finished 48 yards on two carries, seven different Hokies had at least two rushing attempts.
