The Big South Conference concluded its 2015 Big South Football Media Day events in Atlanta, Ga., officially kicking off the 14th season the conference has sponsored football.

During today's events, head coaches and players ran through a series of media interviews with national, regional and local media members. The Liberty Flames Sports Network was on site providing today's video coverage.

The day started with the release of the Big South preseason football poll and preseason all-conference team. Liberty received 129 total votes in the preseason poll, including six first place votes, and was picked behind preseason favorite Coastal Carolina (139 points/15 first place votes).

Liberty and Coastal Carolina shared last year's Big South title, with both teams finishing with identical 4-1 records in league play. The Flames upended the No. 1 ranked Chanticleers, 15-14, on Nov. 22, 2014, wrapping up the regular season and Liberty's seventh title in the last eight years.

Liberty and Coastal Carolina each had eight players named to the Big South Preseason All-Conference team. The two squads combined to have 16 of the 29 players named to the preseason all-conference listing.
