The key matchup of the Ohio State-Virginia Tech game, in most peoples' minds, was the Michael Thomas-Kendall Fuller showdown. 

Thomas, the Buckeyes' best wide receiver, was expected by some to get shut down by Fuller, the Hokies' star cornerback and a future first-round pick in the NFL Draft. 

The matchup lived up to the hype for the most part, with Thomas catching two passes for 46 yards and a touchdown. His touchdown was a really, really good one, with him juking out Fuller so hard the defensive back fell down. 

Thomas' trash talk game was strong following the 42-24 victory.

Ohio State's trash talk game is almost as good as its actual game.
