BLACKSBURG, Va., Sept. 3 (UPI) -- David Wilson racked up 162 yards rushing and scored three times Saturday, powering No. 13 Virginia Tech to a 66-13 season-opening rout of Appalachian State.

Logan Thomas (9-of-19 passing, 149 yards) and Mark Leal (6-of-9, 113) each connected for a pair of scoring passes as Virginia Tech piled up 521 yards of total offense.

DeAndre Presley could manage only 89 yards on 7-of-18 passing for Appalachian State (0-1), while backup Jamal Jackson passed for a TD and ran for another in the loss.
