Nasty in November
• Liberty is 13-2 in November games under Turner Gill, with both losses coming at the hands of Charleston Southern.
• Liberty is tied with Montana for the fourth-highest November winning percentage (.867) among FCS teams since the start of 2012. The Flames trail UNI (15-1, .938), North Dakota State (12-1, .923) and San Diego (12-1, .923) in the category.
• The Flames have recorded three victories over Top 10 opponents in November under Gill and notched the program's first-ever FCS playoff victory over James Madison in 2014.

South Carolina Secondary
• Three members of Liberty's secondary will be playing less than 100 miles from home on Saturday, including Rion Davis (Hopkins), Brandon Tillmon (Lexington) and Chris Turner (Columbia).

Climbing the Chart
• Last Saturday's win over Gardner-Webb was No. 34 for Turner Gill during his five seasons at Liberty, moving him past Tom Dowling (1977-83) and into third place on the Flames' all-time wins list.
• Gill now trails only Sam Rutigliano (67 wins, 1989-99) and Danny Rocco (47 wins, 2006-11) on Liberty's all-time coaching list.

The Liberty Flames Sports Network (LFSN) will provide radio coverage for the contest, with the Flames Pregame Tailgate Show scheduled to go on the air at 12:30 p.m. ESPN3 and the Big South Network will televise the game through its various outlets and platforms.
