Canes To Face One Of ACC's Breakout Stars In QB Thomas

ATLANTA (AP) — Justin Thomas says his will to win drove him — and Georgia Tech — to comeback wins over Georgia Southern and Virginia Tech in his memorable first month as the Yellow Jackets' starting quarterback.

Thomas, who will carry back-to-back 100-yard rushing games into undefeated Georgia Tech's game against Miami on Saturday night, is only one of the Atlantic Coast Conference's new names in starring roles.

Among the ACC's other breakout stars: Louisville safety Gerod Holliman, another first-year starter who leads the nation in interceptions; Duke freshman running back Shaun Wilson, who had a school-record 245 yards rushing against Kansas; Florida State receiver Jesus Wilson and North Carolina State quarterback Jacoby Brissett.

Thomas ranks second among FBS quarterbacks in rushing yards per game.
