Virginia Tech sticking with Logan Thomas at QB


In Virginia Tech’s last two games — both losses — quarterback Logan Thomas has thrown six interceptions and two touchdowns, and now has thrown more picks (12) than scores (11) this year.

But coach Frank Beamer said Monday a quarterback swap isn’t going to happen.

“Absolutely, he’s the quarterback,” Beamer said, via the Virginian-Pilot’s Andy Bitter. “He gives us a chance to win. There is no question in our mind that he’s the guy.”

Those four interceptions probably kept Virginia Tech from winning at home against Duke two weeks ago. Last weekend, Thomas threw two picks — one of which was returned for a fourth-quarter touchdown — and fumbled twice in a 34-27 loss to Boston College. While Thomas threw for a career-best 391 yards, it wasn’t enough — and Virginia Tech’s defense wasn’t necessarily at fault, only allowing the Eagles to gain 289 yards of offense.

“He had a rough outing,” Beamer said. “But as far as what he’s all about and him being our quarterback, that’s not in question.”

Virginia Tech is bowl-eligible at 6-3 and still has a shot at the ACC Championship if they can beat Miami on the road this weekend. But if Thomas has another four-turnover game, the chances of the upset happening are slim to none.
