The No. 13 Virginia Tech Hokies will travel to face the Pittsburgh Panthers at Heinz Field on Saturday.
The No. 13 Hokies have looked pretty impressive in the early going, sporting a 2-0 record despite a serious scare against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in their opener. Last Saturday, Frank Beamer's club stepped up and dispatched the Austin Peay Governors with ease, 42-7.
Logan Thomas was especially on his game against Austin Peay. The 6'6'' junior quarterback completed 15-of-23 for 212 yards including a pair of touchdowns.
Virginia Tech's defense also put forth a spirited performance, limiting the Governors to just 62 passing yards on 21 attempts while snatching two interceptions.
Pittsburgh has been a disaster early on, losing handily at home to the Youngstown State Penguins 31-17 and then on the road in their Big East debut to the Cincinnati Bearcats, 34-10.
Against Cincinnati last week the Panthers were gashed for 259 rushing yards on just 31 attempts, coming out to an average of 8.4 yards per carry.
