The Liberty Flames have announced kickoff times for their home football games in 2018, which includes six games at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg, Virginia.

Liberty officially moves up to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) in 2018 and will compete as an Independent. The Flames will not be eligible for post-season play until the 2019 season.

Liberty will open the 2018 season at home against the Old Dominion Monarchs. The game is set for a 6:00pm ET start at Williams Stadium.

The Flames will later have back-to-back games at home, also at 6:00pm ET, on Sept. 15 against the Norfolk State Spartans and on Sept. 22 against the North Texas Mean Green.

In October, Liberty will host consecutive games at Williams Stadium that will both begin at 2:00pm ET. The Troy Trojans will visit Lynchburg on Oct. 13, which is designated as Homecoming for Liberty, and the Idaho State Bengals will visit on Oct. 20.

Liberty’s final home game of the 2018 season is Nov. 24 against the New Mexico State Aggies, who will also be playing as an FBS Independent. The game is set for a 2:00pm ET start.

Kickoff times for road games at Army, New Mexico, New Mexico State, UMass, Virginia, and Auburn will be announced at a later date.
