UMass and Liberty schedule four-game football series

By Kevin Kelley -

The UMass Minutemen and the Liberty Flames have scheduled a four-game, home-and-home football series, The News & Advance has reported.

Liberty previously announced that they will travel to take on UMass at Warren McGuirk Stadium in Amherst on Nov. 3, 2018.

At the time, there were rumors that the series was for more than one game. Those rumors have now been confirmed to The News & Advance by Liberty athletics director Ian McCaw.

In addition to the 2018 game in Amherst, Liberty will travel there the following season on Nov. 2, 2019.

UMass will travel to face Liberty at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg, Virginia in consecutive seasons on Nov. 28, 2020 and Nov. 6, 2021.

UMass has been an FBS Independent since the 2016 season. Liberty will also be an FBS Independent beginning with the 2018 season, and the Flames will be eligible to play in a bowl after the 2019 regular-season.
