The Flames travel just over the mountains for their final game of the year as Liberty squares off in a battle of two Blue Ridge Mountain teams when the Flames meet VMI on Saturday at Alumni Memorial Field. Kickoff for the Big South Conference game is set for 1 p.m. Live video for the game will be available courtesy of the Big South Edge presented by Aeropostale.

The Flames are coming off a 34-20 upset victory over 24th-ranked Charleston Southern last weekend at Williams Stadium, marking the program's first win over a nationally-ranked team since 1997.

VMI enters its final game of the year with a 1-9 record and a 0-3 mark against Big South Conference opponents. The Keydets have dropped nine-straight games which ranks as the second-longest active losing streak in the nation amongst I-AA teams.

Running back Sean Mizzer leads the team and ranks second in the Big South Conference as he has rushed for 851 yards and seven touchdowns. Quarterback Jonathan Wilson has completed 49.5 percent of his pass attempts for 759 yards (45-of-91) and five touchdowns.

Middle linebacker Patrick McKinney leads VMI's defensive efforts with a team-best 74 tackles, including 34 solo stops and 40 assisted tackles. McKinney is the leading freshman tackler in the Big South Conference, while ranking sixth overall in tackles per game (7.4) in the league.
