BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Virginia Tech's offense hasn't quite clicked the way it needs to, especially if the No. 13 Hokies are going to play their way into the national championship picture.

The time it has been sharpest is when quarterback Logan Thomas runs the 2-minute attack. Pittsburgh (0-2) may get to experience that firsthand when the Hokies visit Saturday.

Thomas directed a 51-yard drive in just 44 seconds that ended with Cody Journell's game-tying field goal in Virginia Tech's season-opening overtime victory against Georgia Tech. He also led Virginia Tech on a 71-yard touchdown drive in 1:06, just 26 seconds before halftime last week against Austin Peay.

Wide receiver Dyrell Roberts says Thomas gets to call his own plays in the two-minute offense, and seems to know exactly what he wants to do.
