Bowling Green Vs. Virginia Tech Blog Reaction: 'The Hokies Improved In A Lot Of Areas'

It won't get them back in the AP Poll, but the Virginia Tech Hokies did what they needed to do in a 37-0 romp over Bowling Green.

The Hokies moved the ball with ease while allowing the Falcons to complete only a third of their passes. Hokies blog Gobbler Country still found flaws with many aspects of the game, including Logan Thomas' throwing, and play-calling that seemed to involve a few too many wide receiver screens. But there was a lot to be positive about in the shutout, including Virginia Tech's running game:

The important thing offensively? We ran the football, and well. Four rushers had at least 45 yards (although none came close to the 100-yard mark). That seems to be the way this offense will operate this season, as the younger Beamer has said they will go with the hot hand.

As for Thomas, his 11-for-26 performance was far from ideal, with Gobbler Country noting that the junior QB was "WAY off with a lot of his throws, maybe even more so than in the last couple of weeks."

Bowling Green Vs. Virginia Tech 2012 Results: Hokies Cruise To 37-0 Win

The Virginia Tech Hokies had an easy time with the Bowling Green Falcons on Saturday, cruising to a 37-0 win in Blacksburg, Va. It's a big bounce-back win for the Hokies, who dropped a bad game against Pitt the previous weekend.

The game started slowly for both teams, with Virginia Tech not breaking through until almost five minutes into the second quarter, on a touchdown pass from Logan Thomas to J.C. Coleman. The Hokies made up for lost time, however, and were up by a comfortable 21-0 score at halftime.

Thomas went only 11-26 for 144 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, but added 65 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Michael Holmes and Martin Scales chipped in with one rushing rushing touchdown each, and Coleman and Dyrell Roberts both caught touchdown passes for the Hokies.

Bowling Green Vs. Virginia Tech Score Update: Logan Thomas Passes Hokies To Lead

The Virginia Tech Hokies lead Bowling Green, 21-0, after one half in Blacksburg. Coming off an ugly loss to Pitt, the Hokies offense got off to a slow start again. But Logan Thomas connected on two second-quarter touchdown passes for a quick 14-0 lead. Thomas hit J.C. Coleman for a 10-yard strike, and less than three minutes later, Dyrell Roberts hauled in a big 42-yarder.

The massive VTech quarterback then perfectly executed a touchdown drive in the final five minutes to take a commanding 21-0 lead. Thomas was hitting his receivers right in the numbers, firing strikes and getting the ball quickly to the outside. He scrambled to the his right and appeared to dive across the end zone for his first rushing touchdown of the day, but his knee was ruled down at the one. Moments later, the 260-pound quarterback would punch it in for the three-touchdown lead.Thomas finished the half 9 of 17 for 127 yards.

The Falcons are not a complete cupcake, hanging with Florida into the fourth quarter in the opening week of the season, but Bud Foster's defense – one week after being gashed by Pitt – has bottled up the Falcons.
