Weekly Press Conference: Akron
Liberty Head Football Coach Hugh Freeze held his weekly press conference, Monday morning, from the Media Room of the Liberty Football Center.
During the weekly press event, Freeze recapped Liberty’s one-point setback at No. 18 Wake Forest last weekend, plus previewed the upcoming College for a Weekend matchup against Akron.
Liberty (2-1) will return to Williams Stadium for its first meeting with Akron (1-2, 0-0 MAC) in 20 years. Host Akron won the teams’ only previous meeting, 49-21, on Oct. 12, 2002.
Liberty is 4-9 all-time against MAC opponents, having won each of its last two MAC contests. Most recently, the Flames routed Eastern Michigan 56-20 in the 2021 LendingTree Bowl.
Liberty will look to get back in the win column after a 37-36 loss at No. 18 Wake Forest last Saturday. The Flames’ first three games have been decided by a total of 10 points.
