Following Thursday afternoon's practice, Liberty's final full practice before its match-up with Lehigh on Saturday, Flames Sports Network reporter Alan York had a chance to talk with head football coach Danny Rocco.

The second meeting in the all-time series between the Flames and Mountain Hawks will mark Liberty's second-straight against a Top 25 opponent. The Mountain Hawks come into the game with a No. 15 ranking in the Sports Network poll and a No. 16 ranking according to the FCS Coaches poll.

The game will be the Flames' first day contest of the year, after opening up the season with three games kicking off after 6 p.m.

A win over nationally ranked Lehigh would be a milestone in program history, with the Flames coming into the contest with 199-199-4 overall record. It would also give Coach Rocco his first victory over a Top 25 program since beating No. 12 Elon to close out the 2008 season. Liberty is 3-4 all-time under Coach Rocco when facing Top 25 programs.

The Flames Sports Network will be providing both radio and television coverage of the contest. The Flames Tailgate Radio Show goes on the air live at 11 a.m. and can be heard all throughout the Victory FM Radio Network. The television broadcast for the 12:30 p.m. kickoff will be available on most Flames Sports Network television partners, plus will be available on ESPN3.com.
