During this week's edition of the Gridiron Glance, correspondent Nick Pierce had a chance to talk with Donald Manns and Kevin Fogg, two of Liberty's cornerbacks.

Manns and Fogg helped the Flames hold No. 3 James Madison to just 10 points last weekend and 283 yards of total offense. The Dukes came into the contest averaging 34.5 points per game and over 360 yards of total offense per contest.

Manns is the Flames starting "boundary" cornerback and has recorded 10 tackles on the season. The Jacksonville, Fla., native sat out the 2008 season after suffering an ankle injury during Liberty's victory over Gardner-Webb in 2007, the game that clinched the program's first-ever Big South title. He came back in 2009 to start nine contests and finish the year with 18 stops.

Fogg quickly jumped onto the defensive season last year, as the true freshman saw playing time in all 11 contests, finishing the season with 10 tackles. He was also one of 11 players to pick up a fumble recovery and help the Flames finished the 2009 season ranked No. 1in the country in turnover margin.

Last weekend against the Dukes, Fogg make a touchdown-saving play, as the sophomore stepped in front of a pass and intercepted it in the end zone.

Manns and Fogg, along with the rest of the Flames, will welcome Savannah State to Williams Stadium on Saturday at 7 p.m. The contest, Liberty's last non-conference tilt of the regular season, will mark the grand-re-opening of Liberty's on-campus facility.
