The Liberty University Athletics Department has announced WSET ABC Channel 13 will air Liberty's matchup with West Virginia on Sept. 5. Kickoff in Morgantown, W.Va., is set for Noon and the Lynchburg ABC affiliate will be carrying the ESPN Regional Television Production live.

The deal continues to strengthen Liberty Athletics' extensive football television package, as Liberty Athletics has one of the largest NCAA FCS television packages in the country. This upcoming season, Liberty Athletics has affiliate agreements which place Liberty football games into more than 35 million homes around the country each home-game week, airing the Flames Sports Network coverage on such networks as MASN, FamilyNet, WTLU and WRTN.

"We are always excited when one of our corporate partners joins with us to further expand its involvement with Liberty Athletics," stated Liberty University Director of Athletics Jeff Barber. "We are thrilled that WSET will be airing our season opener against West Virginia, giving our fan base throughout Central Virginia, which is not able to travel to the game, an opportunity to see Liberty compete against one of the nation's top FBS programs."
