Saturday's Top Storylines
1. No. 22/NR Liberty (3-1) will play host to 2016 FCS Playoff qualifier Saint Francis (Pa.) (2-1) on Saturday. Both teams are off to their best start in recent years, but both are coming off of their first loss of 2017.
2. The Flames are 2-0 all-time versus the Red Flash, 2-0 at home this season and 5-0 all-time at home versus NEC opponents.
3. After being limited to a season-low 10 points at Jacksonville State, Liberty's high-powered offense will be challenged once again. Saint Francis is yielding only 8.3 ppg and has allowed just one touchdown in its last 14 quarters of football, dating back to 2016.
4. Saturday's game will feature a QB matchup between Buckshot (Liberty's Stephen Calvert) and Bear (Saint Francis' Bear Fenimore). The pair has combined for 2,156 passing yards, 21 touchdowns and only three interceptions thus far in 2017.
5. Talented wide receivers will be on display at Williams Stadium, highlighted by Liberty's Antonio Gandy-Golden (28 receptions, 499 yards, 4 TDs) and Saint Francis All-American Kamron Lewis (17 receptions, 264 yards, 4 TDs).
6. If Liberty wins, the Flames will enjoy their first four-win September since 1990. Meanwhile, Saint Francis is searching for its first 3-1 start to a season since the 1986 campaign.

A Liberty Win Would ...
• Give the Flames their best five-game start (4-1) to a season since 2008, when Liberty opened at 5-0.
• Boost the Flames' 2017 home record to 3-0 and push the team's all-time mark at Williams Stadium to 111-48.
• Improve the Flames' all-time record against Saint Francis (Pa.) to 3-0, including 2-0 at Williams Stadium.
• Make the Flames 6-1 all-time against NEC opponents, including 6-0 at home and 5-0 at Williams Stadium.
• Give the Flames four wins in the month of September for the third time in program history and the first since 1990.
• Enable the Flames to head into the start of Big South play on a winning note for the fourth consecutive season.
• Deny Saint Francis (Pa.) its first 3-1 start to a season since 1986.
