A Darrin Peterson touchdown reception and a Jacob Hagen interception allowed Liberty to secure a 55-48 overtime road victory over Appalachian State on Saturday at Kidd Brewer Stadium.

Liberty, playing in its second overtime game in a row, tied the game at 48-48 on a 13-yard touchdown run by Josh Woodrum with 6:19 left to play in regulation. The run tied the game for the fifth time on the afternoon in a back and forth battle between the two programs.

There was no shortage of offense in the contest, as the teams combined for 1,129 total offensive yards. Liberty finished the game with 501 total offensive yards, its second highest total of the 2014 season.

The win gave the Flames their third over an FBS team in program history and the second in the last five seasons. The game was played in front of 26,058 fans, the seventh largest crowd to ever see a Flames football game and the largest to see a Liberty victory (previous record was 19,314 at Williams Stadium against Savannah State on Oct. 2, 2010).
