Thoughts from Head Coach Lang Wedemeyer
"I thought we didn't come into the game with a great mentality and VMI did a good job of frustrating us. But I was very pleased how we kept at it until we broke through and that is a mark of a maturing team."
Liberty will begin its ASUN schedule starting on the road with Jacksonville and North Florida. Kickoff against Jacksonville is set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26.
