Some things you may not know about the Big South Conference:
-VMI leads the nation in rushing offense (384.0 ypg).
Back to VMI for a second...Head Coach Sparky Woods admitted during the Big South's weekly teleconference that the rushing yard mark may be a bit inflated from performances against lower-level teams, but nonetheless, you have to be impressed by Tim Maypray (pictured) of the Keydets, who is now the first player in Conference history with a 50-yard rush in four consecutive games.
As for Liberty...the Flames are ranked 20 and 21 in the two major FCS polls, and Choice Hotels Big South Offensive Player of the Week Rashad Jennings (pictured) also earned National Offensive Player of the Week honors from The Sports Network. Collecting honors seemed to fit the Flames this week, with their dramatic win over Youngstown State: Liberty also had the New Balance Defensive Player of the Week for the Big South (Nick Hursky) and the Freshman of the Week (Matt Bevins).
