Today's Game
Winners of four in a row, the Flames will begin their final regular-season homestand of the year when they host Presbyterian College inside Williams Stadium during Liberty's annual Family Weekend.

Series Recap
The Flames will be looking for their third-straight victory over the Blue Hose when they welcome Presbyterian College to Williams Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Liberty is a perfect 2-0 when facing the Blue Hose in Big South games, while the overall series, which started in 1982, is knotted at 4-4.

The Last Time Out
The Flames had their second-best team rushing performance of the 2010 season, rushing for 259 yards and four touchdowns en route to a 34-24 victory over Presbyterian College, in Clinton, S.C., last year. Mike Brown carried the bullock load of ground work, rushing 23 times for 149 yards and a score, while Sirchauncey Holloway had a breakout game with 13 carries for 71 yards and his first career three-rushing touchdown game.

A Baker's Dozen
The Flames thrilled its 2011 Homecoming crowd with a 63-27 victory over No. 20 Coastal Carolina two weeks ago, giving Liberty is 13th-straight victory over a Big South opponent inside Williams Stadium. During the current streak, which began in 2006, the Flames have outscored opponents by an average of 29.6 points per game (47.5 PF/17.9 PA).

Attendance Attention
Liberty's 40th anniversary Homecoming celebration helped draw the second-largest crowd in Williams Stadium history, two weeks ago, when 19,111 fans saw Liberty down No. 20 Coastal Carolina, 63-27. Entering this weekend's action, Liberty currently ranks No. 10 nationally in total FCS home attendance (69,576) and No. 12 in average home attendance (17,394).

Back Amongst the Best
Liberty's four-game winning streak has moved the Flames back inside the Top 25 in both the Sports Network and FCS Coaches polls, this week. Liberty dropped out of the national ranking following back-to-back three-point setbacks to a pair of current Top 10 teams (No. 7/6 Lehigh and No. 9/10 James Madison) three weeks ago. Liberty is ranked No. 23 in this week's Sports Network poll and No. 24 in the latest FCS Coaches listing.

Balanced Attack
The Flames are having one of their most balanced offensive attacks in recent memory during the 2011 season. Liberty has scored 34 offensive touchdowns this season, 17 by rushing plays and 17 by passing plays. Additionally, the Flames finished their last home game against Coastal Carolina with a season-high 518 total offensive yards, with 259 rushing yards and 259 passing yards.

Five Times the Fun
Liberty etched its name in the Big South record book this past weekend as a result of its 38-16 road win at Charleston Southern. The victory pushed Liberty's Big South record to 3-0 this year, making the Flames the first program in league history to start five-consecutive seasons with a 3-0 record in conference play.

Great out of the Gates
Liberty is off to a 3-0 start in Big South play this season, due largely to the Flames getting out ahead of its opponents quickly. During its first three Big South games this season, Liberty has outscored opponents 101-0 before they could dent the scoreboard (Gardner-Webb: 21-0; Coastal Carolina: 42-0; Charleston Southern: 38-0).

Spreading the Wealth
For the 13-straight Big South game, the Flames scored 30 or points in a game, as they defeated Charleston Southern, 38-16, this past weekend. However, the Flames surpassed the 30-point threshold in a less conventional method, getting 14 points from its offense (two touchdown passes), 14 points from its defense (two interception returns for touchdown) and 10 points from its special teams (kickoff return for a touchdown and a field goal).

Picking Off Passes
Liberty finished the Charleston Southern game, last weekend, with a season-high four interceptions and returned two of the giveaways for a touchdown. Following the game, Liberty now ranks No. 11 in the country in passes intercepted, as the Flames have intercepted 11 passes through eight games.

Chart Toppers
With his first extra point against Charleston Southern this past weekend, Matt Bevins became the Big South's all-time leading scorer. The two-time, first-team All-America kicker has now surpassed the previous record held by Coastal Carolina Josh Hoke (297), becoming the first player in league history to score more than 300 career points (305).

One for the Record Books
KaJuan Lee helped stop a potential Charleston Southern scoring drive and added points to Liberty's scoreboard total all in one play. The senior intercepted a pass in the end zone and returned it 100 yards for a score, giving Liberty a 21-0 lead. The return bested Liberty's previous school record of 95 yards set by Marcus Harvey against Appalachian State in 1997. The turnover marked the first interception this year for Lee and the sixth of his Liberty career.

Twice as Nice
Kevin Fogg helped cement Liberty's 38-16 victory over Charleston Southern this past weekend, opening up the second half with an 82-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to put the Flames up 38-0. Following the game, Fogg now ranks No. 2 nationally in kickoff return yards (averaging 34.0 yards per return) and is one of two FCS players in the country with two kickoff returns for a touchdown in 2011.

Big South Bests
Following career days against Charleston Southern this past weekend, KaJuan Lee and Kevin Fogg were honored by the Big South Conference on Monday. The pair was given two of the league's four weekly accolades. Lee was named the Big South's Defensive Player of the Week, while Fogg was honored as the conference's Special Teams Player of the Week.
