BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Logan Thomas ran 19 yards for a touchdown with 56 seconds to play Saturday, capping a wild fourth quarter as No. 21 Virginia Tech beat Miami 38-35.
The Hokies (5-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) rescued their chances of contending in the Coastal Division with the dramatic rally, and may have killed the hopes for Miami (2-3, 0-2).
And they did it less than 2 minutes after Lamar Miller scored on a 30-yard burst for the Hurricanes, giving them a 35-31 lead and forcing Thomas and the Hokies to respond.
Thomas did, with a big assist from David Wilson, driving the Hokies 77 yards in eight plays, and capping the drive with a draw play on which he went virtually untouched for the score.
