The Flames Weekend Wrap-Up returns today and looks back at Liberty's 38-16 victory over Charleston Southern on Saturday, which has the Flames off to a 3-0 start in the Big South.

The Flames once again jumped out to a sizeable lead, as a Kevin Fogg kickoff return for a touchdown to open the second half pushed Liberty's lead to 38-0. During its three Big South games this year, the Flames have outscored opponents 101-0 before the opponent could find the scoreboard for the first time (Gardner-Webb: 21-0; Coastal Carolina: 42-0; Charleston Southern: 38-0).

As previously mentioned, Liberty is now 3-0 in Big South play, placing the Flames atop the current league standings. The win on Saturday allowed the Flames to become the first program in Big South history to start conference play with a 3-0 record in five consecutive seasons.

The Flames used a unique blend of offense, defense and special teams to reach its final point total at CSU Stadium. Liberty's offense contributed the first 14 points on a pair of Mike Brown touchdown passes. The Flames defense and special teams took care of the rest of the scoring during the Big South victory, with two interception returns for a touchdown, Fogg's kickoff return for a score and a field goal.

Liberty is now 17-2 all-time against Charleston Southern, including a 9-1 mark since Big South play opened in 2002. Head coach Danny Rocco has never lost to the Buccaneers, winning all five games by an average margin of victory of 24.8 points per game (38.0 PF/13.2 PA).
