Halftime: Virginia Tech 21, Wake Forest 10
By ESPN.com staff
The 10-0 Wake Forest lead didn't last long.
Virginia Tech scored three straight touchdowns in the second quarter, and quarterback Logan Thomas had a hand in all of them, rushing for two and passing for another. The Hokies are the comeback kings, not only from game to game and half to half, but tonight from quarter to quarter.
Having spoken with Thomas and quarterbacks coach Mike O'Cain earlier this week, both said the offense gained a lot of confidence from last week's win over Miami. It's that kind of confidence that can allow Virginia Tech to fall into a hole knowing it's good enough to pull itself out. Thomas is clearly building upon last week's performance, though, that will be tough to duplicate. Ever. Wake Forest isn't going to win this game if it keeps striking out on third-down conversions (0-for-8). It hasn't been a flawless first half for either team, but the Hokies have the momentum now.
