The dust has settled from college football's opening week, but an ACC clash still awaits on Monday night. Georgia Tech will head to Blacksburg, Va. to take on Virginia Tech.

Logan Thomas will command the spotlight after a sophomore season that put him on the map. Entering his junior year, Thomas has generated quite a bit of buzz leading up to the 2012 season. He is a big, athletic quarterback with a strong arm. He'll be tossing the ball to a pair of senior wide receivers, Marcus Davis and Dyrell Roberts. This passing attack will be interesting to watch throughout the season.

The Yellow Jacket secondary should be up to the task, though, as Rod Sweeting and Louis Young form a solid tandem at cornerback.

After the jump, take a look at all the prospects to watch, the top matchup and the question of the night.
