The Liberty Flames and the New Mexico State Aggies have scheduled an in-season, home-and-home football series for both the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
Both teams will be FBS Independents beginning in 2018. New Mexico State is leaving the Sun Belt Conference (involuntarily), and Liberty is moving up to the FBS from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).
In the first leg of the series, New Mexico State will host Liberty at Aggie Memorial Stadium in Las Cruces on Oct. 6, 2018. The Aggies will then travel to take on the Flames at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg, Virginia on Nov. 24, 2018.
In 2019, Liberty will travel to New Mexico State on Oct. 5 and will then host the Aggies on Nov. 30.
“We are very excited about having Liberty on our future schedule,” Aggie head coach Doug Martin said. “Having competed against Turner Gill when we were both head coaches in the MAC, I can assure you they will be a very well coached opponent and these four games will be very exciting.”
