The Georgia Southern Eagles and the Liberty Flames have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2025 and 2026, both schools have announced.
Georgia Southern will host the first game of the series at Paulson Stadium in Statesboro on Oct. 4, 2025. The series will then shift to Williams Stadium in Lynchburg, Virginia for the second and final game of the series on Oct. 10, 2026.
Georgia Southern and Liberty met three times on the gridiron while both were members of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Eagles won all three meetings and lead the series 3-0.
Liberty is moving up from the FCS to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) as an Independent beginning with the 2018 season. The Flames will become a full member of the FBS in 2019 and will then be eligible to play in a bowl game.
