    This is your Liberty Flames Minute! Brought to you by Select Bank for this Tuesday, October 4, 2022, I’m Nick Pierce.

    For a second straight year, the Flames football team is 4-1 after five games. This week, Liberty travels to 1-4 UMass. Kickoff on Saturday is set for 3:30 in Amherst, Mass. Flames Head Coach Hugh Freeze shares his initial thoughts on the Minutemen.

    “I was hoping I would turn the tape on yesterday and feel great, but I don’t. I think Don Brown is one of the better defensively-minded coaches in the history of the game and they are playing really good defense. They’ve struggled offensively to score points and I hope that continues. We’re going to have to play really well on that side but defensively they’re not giving up a whole lot.”

    UMass led Eastern Michigan, 10-0 at halftime last week before the eagles rallied for a 20-13 win. Liberty is 3-1 all-time against UMass and the Flames have won the last three meetings.

    You can see Saturday’s game on ESPN+ or listen on the radio from Van Wagner on the Liberty Flames Sports Network.
