Virginia Tech lost its second game in a row Saturday to Boston College. The final score was 34-27 Boston College. The loss comes as a shocker to Hokies fans, and puts the team right back in the same position that they were in a few weeks ago. Virginia Tech is once again back to being inconsistent and has fans wondering what has happened to Logan Thomas.
Logan Thomas had been carrying Virginia Tech’s offense the past few games, but he simply did not show up on Saturday. Sure, Thomas threw for 391 yards and 2 touchdowns, but he was not himself on the field. Thomas made poor throws, and went on to toss 2 more interceptions. Thomas managed just 38 yards on 20 carries in the game. How Thomas plays often dictates how the team plays, and his inconsistency is really beginning to hurt the Hokies.
Once again, the Virginia Tech run game was missing. Aside from Logan Thomas, Trey Edmunds carried the ball only 6 times for 10 yards. This is something that can not keep happening for the Hokies. They need to establish a run game at some point to take some pressure of off Logan Thomas. It is beginning to hold the team down, and the Hokies are not going to get any better on offense if they can not run the ball.
Andre Williams for Boston College ran for 2 touchdowns and 166 yards. Williams tore up the Hokies defense, which is something we are not used to seeing. The Eagles did not pass much on the day, but were efficient when doing so. Chase Rettig completed 11/14 passes for 93 yards and a touchdown. Boston College wasn’t flashy on offense, but they got the job done.
The difference in this game was turnovers. Boston College forced 4 turnovers from Logan Thomas and they proved to be costly. The Hokies offense is a disaster right now and it needs major work. Logan Thomas’ play is very concerning right now, and hopefully he can turn things around. Coming up next for Virginia Tech is #14 Miami.
