There would be no repeat of the James Madison loss for Virginia Tech. The Hokies rolled over Appalachian State 66-13 Saturday.
Here are the highlights from Blacksburg, VA (Thanks WDBJ-TV Roanoke, VA)
Virginia Tech running back David Wilson might be a star in the making and Wilson began 2011 in spectacular fashion rushing for 162 yards and three touchdowns.
Hokie quarterback Logan Thomas played well in his first start. From the air Thomas was 9-19 for 149 yards, two touchdown passes and no interceptions.
“I think Logan is going to get better each and every quarter." Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer said after the game. "That’s the only thing Logan needs right now. He just needs some experience. He’ll handle it better and better every time he’s out there."
By the way, Frank Beamer signed a contract extension that goes to 2016.
Not a bad day for the Hokies or coach Beamer.
