The Flames Weekend Wrap-Up returns today and looks back at Liberty's 37-31 win over VMI, wrapping up the home portion of the Flames' regular-season schedule.

Liberty moved to 5-0 in Big South play for the third time in the last four years, following the six-point victory. The win extended Liberty's winning streak to six games, a run that is currently tied for the seventh longest active FCS winning streak in the country.

The victory also closed out an impressive run for the Flames' 2011 season class, as the group finished up its four-year playing careers a perfect 12-0 at home against Big South foes. During those 12-straight home Big South victories, Liberty outscored opponents by an average of 28.42 points per game (44.75 PF/16.33 PA).

Liberty is one of seven FCS teams left in the country to remain undefeated in conference play (out of 124 FCS programs): Harvard (5-0/Ivy), Lehigh (4-0/Patriot), Liberty (5-0/Big South), Montana State (7-0/Big Sky), North Dakota State (6-0/Missouri Valley), Sam Houston State (6-0/Southland) and Stony Brook (4-0/Big South).
