As the Flames Sports Network continues to recap the 2012 football season, FSN looks back at the Top 10 moments of the year, continuing today with moment No. 8.

The next moment in the Top 10 series happened when the Flames made their longest trip west since 1998 to face two-time national champion Montana at Washington-Grizzly Stadium on Sept. 15.

Nick Sigmon, who earned All-Big South second-team honors as a redshirt freshman in 2011, left Liberty's season-opener against Wake Forest after suffering a concussion and missed the following week against Norfolk State.

However, Liberty's starting middle linebacker returned to the Flames' defensive unit against the Grizzlies and the Roanoke, Va., native made it perfectly clear he was completely healthy in the Montana contest. Sigmon finished the game with a season-high 11 tackles, including four solo stops and 1.5 tackles for a loss (four total yards). 

Sigmon finished the season third on Liberty's roster with 52 tackles (32 solo, 20 assisted), giving him 112 stops (62 solo, 50 assisted) and 18.5 career tackles for a loss midway through his Liberty playing career. Sigmon was one of two All-Big South first-team honorees for the Flames in 2012.

Be sure to check back each weekday during the next two weeks, as the Flames Sports Network and LibertyFlames.com continue to reveal the Top 10 moments of the 2012 football season. The No. 1 moment will be revealed on Dec. 28.
