Saturday's Top Storylines 1. Liberty (5-4, 1-2 Big South) will host Presbyterian (3-6, 0-3 Big South) for the Flames' final home game of the 2017 season and Liberty's last Big South home contest in program history. 2. The two teams enter Williams Stadium heading in different directions. Liberty has won back-to-back games, while Presbyterian is looking to shake a three-game losing skid. 3. The Flames will be seeking their ninth consecutive win over PC, which would become the longest winning streak against a single opponent in program history. Liberty is 5-0 versus the Blue Hose at Williams Stadium and 8-0 in Big South matchups with Presbyterian. 4. Playing on both Senior Day and the program's eighth annual Military Appreciation Day, Liberty needs a victory to clinch its 12th consecutive winning season. 5. Liberty QB Stephen Calvert has tied the Liberty single-season record with 24 touchdown passes in 2017. The sophomore was held in check during the Flames' 16-0 win at PC last season, completing 5-of-15 passes for 51 yards and an interception. 6. RB Carrington Mosley, who will be one of 10 Liberty seniors honored prior to kickoff, recorded his first career 100-yard rushing performance at PC in 2016. He set career highs for both carries (30) and yards (151) last week against Duquesne and scored the winning TD with just 4:14 to play.
A Liberty Win Would ... • Clinch the Flames' 12th consecutive winning season and the 25th winning season in program history. • Mark the Flames' ninth straight head-to-head victory over Presbyterian, boosting Liberty's all-time record against the Blue Hose to 11-4, including 9-0 in Big South matchups and 6-0 at Williams Stadium. • Give the Flames a win in their final Big South Conference home game, making Liberty's all-time record 33-8 in Big South contests at Williams Stadium. • Improve the Flames' November record under Turner Gill to 16-4, including 10-2 at Williams Stadium. • Give the Flames their second three-game winning streak of the season. • Hand Presbyterian its seventh straight road setback and its fourth consecutive loss overall.
