Virginia Tech match-up spotlights future FBS foes

July 30, 2012 : Liberty University Athletics

Just days away from the opening of August training camp for the 2012 season, Liberty Football is already looking forward to its future match-ups with FBS opponents.

FBS foes have been set for three out of Liberty's next four seasons with match-ups against Kent State in 2013, West Virginia in 2015 and fellow commonwealth opponent Virginia Tech in 2016 on Liberty's future schedules.

"We are thrilled to be playing these talented FBS opponents," stated head coach Turner Gill. "It is great national exposure for our football program."

In 2016, Liberty will take on its first-ever FBS opponent from its own state when the Flames make the trek to Blacksburg, Va., for the Commonwealth battle in Lane Stadium.
