LibertyFlames.com Releases Elon Game Day Central Page
After a heartbreaking double-overtime loss to William & Mary last weekend in Williamsburg, Liberty continues a two-game road swing on Saturday. The Flames will look to rebound on Saturday against former Big South foe Elon. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m., at Rhodes Stadium (11,250) in Elon, N.C.
The game renews one of the oldest running series in program history. Liberty and Elon have squared off 10 times prior to today, making the Phoenix one of seven teams Liberty has met on the gridiron 10 or more times.
Liberty took the last game in the series in 2004, handing the visiting Phoenix a 27-17 defeat on Nov. 20 to close out a four-game winning streak to end the campaign.
However, Elon has controlled the series from the get go, with the Phoenix holding a 7-3 edge. The squads first met in 1976, with Elon claiming a 59-14 victory in Burlington, N.C.
Liberty's only road victory over Elon came in 1988 when the Flames rolled up 42 points en route to a 42-14 win, Oct. 8, in Burlington.
