BLACKSBURG, VA (AP) - Logan Thomas threw for 292 yards and two
touchdowns and No. 13 Virginia Tech overcame a sluggish offensive
performance for a 26-7 victory over Arkansas State on
Thomas hit D.J. Coles with a short pass that Coles took 49 yards
for a touchdown and found Danny Coale from 4 yards out as the
Hokies improved to 3-0 for the first time since 2006. Thomas was 21
for 33 and also threw two interceptions.

only scoring drive. The Red Wolves finished with 269 yards, ending
their string of 14 consecutive games with at least 300 total yards.
