Liberty Adds Football Series with Georgia Southern

Future Football Schedules

One day after releasing the completed 2020 and 2021 football schedules, Liberty has announced the addition of a home-and-home series with Georgia Southern.

The Flames will make the trip to Statesboro, Ga., in 2025 for a game on Oct. 4, while the Eagles will travel to Lynchburg, Va., in 2026 for a contest on Oct. 10 at Williams Stadium.

Liberty has now announced completed football schedules for the next four seasons, plus match-ups that extend through the 2030 season.

On Feb. 16, 2017, the NCAA approved Liberty's waiver request to begin the two-year FBS reclassification process. Liberty recently completed its final season as a FCS program in 2017, playing as a member of the Big South Conference.

During the 2018 season, Liberty will compete as a FBS independent program and will not be eligible for postseason competition. At the conclusion of the two-year transition process, Liberty will be a full-fledged FBS program in 2019, which will include the opportunity to compete for bowl game appearances.

The Flames will host their first FBS home game against Old Dominion on Sept. 1, 2018, the first of four FBS teams to visit Williams Stadium in 2018 to meet the FBS reclassification criteria. The 2018 home schedule also features FBS matchups against North Texas (Sept. 22), Troy (Oct. 13) and New Mexico State (Nov. 24).

Fans who purchased season tickets in 2017 or will purchase 2018 season tickets will have priority on purchasing season tickets in 2019. For more information about becoming a season ticket holder, please contact the Flames Ticket Office at (434) 582-SEAT (7328) or
