BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) – Logan Thomas threw an early touchdown pass, Cody Journell kicked four field goals and No. 24 Virginia Tech sacked Pittsburgh’s Tom Savage eight times in a 19-9 victory on Saturday.

The Hokies (6-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their sixth straight game and ended a four-game losing streak against the Panthers, avenging a 35-17 loss a year ago that sent Virginia Tech into a long skid.

This time, they proved just as inhospitable hosts to the ACC newcomer Panthers (3-2, 2-2).

Savage, who tied an ACC record with six touchdown passes three weeks ago in a 58-55 victory against Duke, never had much of a chance to get wide receivers Devin Street and Tyler Boyd into the game.

Savage’s sacks totaled minus-49 yards, and he has now been sacked 15 times in his past two appearances.
