BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Logan Thomas ran 2 yards for a touchdown and then ran for the 2-point conversion in the third overtime Saturday, as Virginia Tech overcame a sloppy performance and beat Marshall 29-21.
The Hokies (3-1), who tied the game with 3:09 left in regulation, got the ball first in the third overtime, after neither team had scored in the first two,.
Thomas put some plays together. He ran for 2 yards, hit Chris Mangus for 10, ran for 2, and hit Josh Stanford. After a pass interference call on the Herd, Thomas bolted through the line for the touchdown, and then the PAT.
Marshall (2-2) got to the Hokies' 14, but then Rakeem Cato couldn't find a receiver, and when Davonte Allen couldn't come up with his fourth-down pass in the end zone, the marathon game was finally over.
The game was played in driving rain.
