The Flames' offense has relied heavily on the strength of quarterback Josh Woodrum. The senior accounts for 66 percent of Liberty's offense through the first eight games of the 2015 season.

Liberty ranks No. 25 in the country in passing offense, averaging 270.4 passing yards per game. The Flames rank No. 13 in the country in first down offense (171 first downs) and No. 9 in first downs via passing plays (97 or 56.7 percent).

Individually, Woodrum surpassed Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame quarterback Robby Justino (9,548) during Liberty's Homecoming victory over Kennesaw State. The senior has recorded 9,614 career passing yards and is the second player in Big South history with 10,000 career total offensive yards (10,034).

Liberty has also benefited from its management of the clock, as the Flames ranked No. 7 in the country in average time of possession (33:42). Liberty has won the time of possession battle in seven of eight games this season.

The senior leads the Flames with 50 receptions for 672 yards and six touchdowns through eight games. His team-leading totals have allowed him to become Liberty's all-time career leader in receiving yards (2,936), receptions (197) and tied for first with 26 receiving touchdowns.
