The Liberty Flames have completed their 2019 football schedule with the addition of three opponents, the school announced on Wednesday.
Liberty will play a home-and-home series with the UL Lafayette Ragin’s Cajuns beginning on Sept. 7, 2019 at Cajun Field. The Flames will host the second and final game of the series on Nov. 20, 2021 at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg.
The other two opponents that round out Liberty’s 2019 football schedule are from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). Liberty will host Hampton on Sept. 21, 2019 and Maine on Oct. 19. FBS teams are allowed to schedule more than one FCS team, but only one win would count towards bowl eligibility.
The remainder of Liberty’s 2019 football schedule was previously announced. The Flames will open the season at home against the Syracuse Orange on Aug. 31.
Other home opponents foe Liberty in 2019 include Buffalo, Hampton, New Mexico, Maine, and New Mexico State. Road games include UL Lafayette, New Mexico State, Rutgers, UMass, BYU, and Virginia.
