Head coach Danny Rocco held his weekly press conference for the local Lynchburg media earlier today in the Donor Room of the Williams Football Operations Center.

During the 30-minute meeting with the media, Rocco looked back at Liberty's double overtime victory over Presbyterian College, last Saturday, before looking ahead at this week's regular-season home finale against VMI.

Liberty claimed its first overtime victory since the 2003 season on Saturday, when Mike Brown found Chris Summers open for a 25-yard touchdown reception on the first play of the second overtime period.

With the victory, the Flames pushed their Big South home winning streak to 14-straight games, while becoming the first program in league history to start conference play 4-0 for five seasons in a row.

The Keydets will be looking to also end a five-game individual skid against the Flames, including back-to-back losses on Liberty Mountain by an average of 39.5 points per game (lost 73-34 in 2007 and 54-14 in 2009).
