Assistant Head Coach Carl Torbush, who is handling all the media obligations for head coach Turner Gill this week, represented the Flames football program at today's weekly press conference.

During the 30-minute press event, Torbush reflected on Liberty's season-opening setback to Wake Forest, plus previewed the Flames' upcoming match-up with Norfolk State.

Liberty leads the overall series with Norfolk State, 3-1, including a perfect 2-0 record at home against the Spartans. Norfolk State claimed the last meeting between the two programs, winning 34-17 in Norfolk, Va., on Nov. 19, 2005.

The Spartans come into the match up ranked No. 24 in the latest FCS Coaches poll. In Liberty's last contest with a nationally ranked FCS team, the Flames walked away with a 63-27 win over No. 20 Coastal Carolina at home on Oct. 15, 2011.
