Virginia Tech vs. Miami: Logan Thomas not worried about Hurricanes crowd

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

The Miami Hurricanes host the Virginia Tech Hokies on Thursday night at Sun Life Stadium, and Hokies quarterback Logan Thomas does not think Miami's homefield advantage will affect his Virginia Tech squad.

The Virginia Tech Hokies travel to Miami on Thursday night to take on the Hurricanes with both teams battling to win the ACC Coastal Division and earn a berth in the conference championship game. Hokies quarterback Logan Thomas admitted to reporters in Blacksburg that he is not concerned about crowd noise at Sun Life Stadium playing a role in Thursday's pivotal matchup:

"I guess the last time I went was two years ago and it's a big stadium for any team. I guess because ‘The U' is the way ‘The U' is now and not of the old ages, that it's not as full as it has been and used to be," Thomas said. "I don't know how to put it up against another stadium. It still has some sound to it, but it's not what you would expect a team that has a legacy like Miami to have. Communication should be fine."

Both Miami and Virginia Tech have two losses entering Thursday night's game, and the loser of the contest will be all but eliminated from the conference title game.

Thomas threw only one pass in Virginia Tech's last visit to Miami, a 31-17 victory over the Hurricanes in November of 2010. However, the junior quarterback played a vital role in Tech's 38-35 win over Miami last season, scoring on a 19-yard touchdown run in the closing minute to propel the Hokies to victory.

Kickoff on Thursday is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
