No. 16 Hokies back to leading with their defense

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Virginia Tech is going back to its defense-first roots.
 
    
For all the talk about quarterback Logan Thomas and his potential to be in the Heisman Trophy discussion, the No. 16 Hokies will rely on Bud Foster's defense first, starting with Monday night's season-opening game against ACC Coastal Division rival Georgia Tech and its explosive triple option.
 
    
Yellow Jackets coach Paul Johnson's team has lost two in a row and three of four to the Hokies.
 
    
Johnson says if the Virginia Tech defenders really are angling to be the best defense the school has ever put on the field, as several Hokies have said, the unit will have to be impressive.
 
    
Hokies cornerback Kyle Fuller says the matchups with the Yellow Jackets are always physical, but the Hokies are ready.
