Research Notes

  • Virginia Tech held Florida State to minus-15 yards rushing last night, and still lost. FSU's minus-15 yards rushing is the 2nd lowest rushing total for any FBS team since 2000, in a game that they actually won.

  • E.J. Manuel is having quite a season for Florida State - 3 more touchdown passes Thursday give him a career high 19 on the year. And take a look at his touchdown-to-interception differential. He was just a plus-6 in his first 3 seasons combined, but he's now plus-14 this year.

  • After his first half interception against Florida State, Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas has now thrown a pick in 8 straight games. It is the longest such streak in the country this season.
