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

their string of 14 consecutive games with at least 300 total yards.
