The Flames Weekend Wrap-Up returns today and looks back at Liberty's double overtime victory over Presbyterian College, 27-20, Saturday afternoon, at Williams Stadium.

Liberty secured its first overtime victory since the 2003 season when Walter Payton Award candidate Mike Brown found wide receiver Chris Summers open for a 25-yard touchdown pass on the first play of the second overtime period.

Liberty's defense, which had kept the Blue Hose at bay most of the day, came up with a 12-yard sack and a hurried pass on a fourth-down play to give Liberty its 14th-straight Big South victory at home.

For the sixth time in nine games this year, Liberty finished a game with 400 or more total offensive yards (468). Following the Presbyterian College game, Liberty now ranks No. 20 nationally in total offense (423.22 yards per game).

The Flames have now won three in a row against Presbyterian College and are the first team in Big South history to start league play with a perfect 4-0 record five-straight seasons.
