FSU vs. Virginia Tech 2012: Logan Thomas a 'big' challenge for Seminoles

Al Messerschmidt

The Florida State Seminoles face a big challenge in Thursday night's game against the Virginia Tech Hokies in quarterback Logan Thomas.

The Florida St. Seminoles, who have the top-ranked defense in the nation, will be tested by Virginia Tech Hokies quarterback Logan Thomas on Thursday night. Thomas, listed at 6'6 and 260 pounds, matches up well physically against Seminoles' defensive ends Bjoern Werner (6'4, 255) and Cornelius Carradine (6'5, 265). Werner knows that Thomas will be hard to tackle on Thursday:

"That's a big boy," Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner said. "You have to wrap up. That's all I can say. If you get back there, you just have to make sure that he's not going to break the tackle. He's a really big boy."

Thomas, who was the first runner-up for ACC preseason player of the year, has had a worse than expected season. He has completed only 53.3 percent of his passes, down from nearly 60 percent as a sophomore. He has thrown for 2,109 yards, 13 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He has run for 422 yards and six touchdowns this season, but he is coming off a struggle against the Miami Hurricanes, where he completed 19 of 37 passes for 199 passes, no touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Seminoles play the Hokies on Thursday night at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va. The game is scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
