Torrence Named Big South Freshman of the Week
Liberty University defensive back Tim Torrence has been named this week's Big South Freshman of the Week, honoring the rookie's efforts against Western Carolina this past weekend. 

Torrence (Fr., DB, Miramar, Fla.) posted his second-high career tackle total as the defensive back finished the game with four tackles. For the third time this season, the freshman finished a game with three solo tackles, including the first tackle for a loss in his collegiate career (1 yard). Torrence also added his third pass break up of the year. 

Torrence was one of four players honored by the Big South Conference as Charleston Southern's Collin Drafts was named Offensive Player of the Week, the Buccaneers' Jon Carmon was named Defensive Player of the Week and Coastal Carolina kicker Josh Hoke was named Special Team Player of the Week. 

Torrence and the Flames return to Big South Conference action on Saturday when they host Charleston Southern at Williams Stadium in the last home contest of the season. The Buccaneers come to Lynchburg riding the second-longest active winning streak in I-AA football as Charleston Southern picked up its 14th-straight victory with a 28-14 win over Gardner-Webb last weekend. Kickoff for the contest is set for 1 p.m.
