Football Game Notes - Baylor

Liberty Flames Head Football Coach Turner Gill held his weekly press conference today in the Donor Room of the Williams Football Operations Center.

During the afternoon event, Gill recapped the Flames August Training Camp practices and looked ahead to Saturday's season-opener at Baylor.

Saturday's contest will mark the first-ever gridiron meeting between Liberty and Baylor, as well as the Baylor head coaching debut of Matt Rhule. Then an assistant coach at Western Carolina, Rhule faced (and defeated) Liberty in the 2002 season opener, 23-3.

Legendary Baylor head coach Grant Teaff also has ties to Liberty, as grandson Josh Bookbinder coaches the Flames' linebackers. A 2009 Baylor graduate, Bookbinder worked with the Bears' linebackers as an undergraduate coach during the 2007 and 2008 seasons.

After Gill spoke with the media, Offensive Coordinator Joe Dailey and Defensive Coordinator Robert Wimberly addressed the group. Below are links to their separate media sessions.
