Game Day Central Released for Shippensburg Game
For the fourth time in as many years, the Flames enter their second game of the year with a victory under their belts. Last weekend, Liberty opened the 2007 campaign with a 38-14 win over Tusculum in front of a more-than capacity crowd of 14,925 fans at Williams Stadium.
Last weekend almost saw Shippensburg open the season with an upset victory. A 25-yard touchdown pass with just under two minutes remaining saved D-II No. 9 Shepherd from defeat, as the Rams posted a 19-14 comeback win over Shippensburg in both squads' season opener.
Saturday's contest marks the second-straight, first-time opponent for Liberty, as the Flames and the Red Raiders have never previously met on the gridiron.
They will meet for the first time in Lynchburg, Va., this weekend at Williams Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:05 p.m., on Saturday.
For more information about the game, be sure to check out this week's Game Day Central page. A new Game Day Central page will be released each Wednesday during the football season.
The web page is one-stop shopping for a true Flames supporter, as the page includes pertinent information for the upcoming game. The web page includes quick links to both Liberty and its weekly opponent's roster, schedule, coaching staff, media guide and game notes.
The football Game Day Central page is a quick reference point for all web-based multimedia game materials, including links to the Flames Sports Network's free audio stream, a live stats link and a spot to sign up for video streaming of select home and road contests, provided by the Big South EDGE.
