The Liberty Flames have completed their 2023 non-conference football schedule, the school announced Thursday.
The schedule required adjustment due to Liberty’s move to Conference USA, which will take place beginning with the 2023 campaign.
The Flames will open the slate with a tilt against Bowling Green at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg, Va., on Saturday, Sept. 2. Liberty will hit the road to Buffalo for an outing two weeks later on Saturday, Sept. 16. Old Dominion, who is joining the Sun Belt Conference, travels across the Commonwealth two weeks afterward, visiting Lynchburg on Saturday, Sept. 30. A Nov. 18 home battle with UMass finalizes the Flames’ non-league grouping.
Below is a look at Liberty’s four-game non-conference football schedule for the 2023 season:
- 09/02 – Bowling Green
- 09/16 – at Buffalo
- 09/30 – Old Dominion
- 11/18 – UMass
According to ASeaofRed, Liberty will play Louisiana Tech, Florida International, Western Kentucky, Middle Tennessee, UTEP, New Mexico State, Jacksonville State, and Sam Houston in conference matchups next season.
Future Liberty Football Schedules
I’m curious about Thanksgiving weekend games for the new CUSA.
With nine teams, one will be left out from playing a conference game. You won’t want to have your bye week as the last week of the season either.
Guessing somebody will have to lineup a game against an independent, who won’t have a regularly scheduled opponent for the final week. (Army, UConn, UMass)
Maybe FIU locks in a Thanksgiving non-con with FAU?
“We’ll see.” is right.
I’m more excited to see which Franchises, who will be C-USA’s Banner carriers next Year, are in the top 2 Spots @ the end of 2022 & what Momentum Liberty U. Flames builds & carries into it’s new Affiliation.
Will the Hilltoppers grow MIghtier this Year & build further Prestige in the SE Region?
Will the UT Miners build themselves a 2nd winning Season in a Row & sustain their Momentum through the 2nd half of the Season?
With a new Coach & the difference the transfer Portal is making in immediately shoring up your Skills / Talent in the short Term or decimating your proven Talent / Experience, what will the LATech Bulldogs look like?
It would be a trek, but whichever of Stanford/Southern Cal that is not playing Notre Dame on Thanksgiving that season could also potentially be available.
