It's Football Season!!September 3, 2012
This past weekend Liberty’s 2012 football team played against Wake Forest for the first game this season under new head coach Turner Gill. If you didn’t realize in my other blogs, I was so pumped for this game! A group of my friends decided to drive down to North Carolina for the game to support the Flames. The Athletics department at Liberty organized an event called Shake ‘N Bake to Wake which was a caravan of cars driving there together. If you registered for this event you got free t-shirts and car flags to show your flames spirit.
When we got to Wake Forest we parked the cars and our group of friends that were tailgating found some picnic benches and shade to grill. Since it was a really hot day we were so thankful for some shade. My friend Stephen was our grill master and he made burgers, chicken wings and tilapia! Talk about an amazing meal!!
When we got into the stadium, it immediately started to rain. But that didn’t keep Liberty’s fans quiet. Even the TV commentators were saying that the Liberty fans were cheering so loud! Liberty played an amazing game. We scored the first touchdown and by halftime the game was only tied 7-7. Liberty led in the third quarter 14-7 but then Wake Forest came back to score two more touchdowns. We put up a fight and scored a field goal but couldn’t get another touchdown. Wake Forest ended up winning the game 20-17 but Liberty University’s football program definitely made their mark. We are on the same level as other FBS teams!!
