Liberty Announces 2006 Football Schedule Featuring Six Home Games

Liberty University Head Football Coach Danny Rocco has announced the completion of the 2006 football schedule, featuring six home games, including a season-opening Thursday evening game.

The Flames kick off the 2006 campaign with back-to-back home games, starting with a Thursday evening contest against St. Paul's on August 31, followed by a Saturday evening game against Glenville State at Williams Stadium on September 9.

Liberty takes to the road for its next three games, starting with a trip to Towson, Md. to take on Towson on September 16, before traveling south to Savannah, Ga. to face Savannah State on September 23 in the final night game of the season.

The Flames will conclude their three-game road swing by traveling to Winston-Salem, N.C. to face Wake Forest on September 30. This marks the eighth-straight year that Liberty has squared off against a NCAA Division I-A opponent, but the first time that the Flames have faced an opponent from the ACC.

After an off weekend, the Flames return to action on October 14 when Liberty hosts in-state opponent William & Mary for the University's annual homecoming contest.

The game against the Tribe will mark Liberty's final non-conference tune-up as the Flames will close out the year with four out of the last five games coming against Big South opponents. Liberty will start the stretch with a home game against Gardner-Webb on October 21 as part of Parent's Weekend, while Liberty travels to Conway, S.C. to face co-defending champion Coastal Carolina on October 28.

After hosting Western Carolina on November 4 in the team's last remaining non-Big South contest, the Flames host co-league title holder Charleston Southern as part of Senior Day on November 11, before closing out the season with in-state rival VMI on November 18 up in Lexington, Va.
