    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 21-12 victory over Akron, last Saturday, plus previewed this weekend’s road contest at Old Dominion.

    Liberty (3-1) will travel across the Commonwealth on Saturday for a clash with Old Dominion (2-2, 1-0 Sun Belt). The Flames lead 2-1 in a head-to-head series which has seen the home team win all three meetings. Liberty posted a 45-17 home victory over ODU on Sept. 18, 2021 during a season where both teams advanced to bowl games.

    Liberty is 8-3 all-time against Sun Belt opponents, including its 29-27 (4OT) season-opening victory at Southern Miss on Sept. 3.

    The Flames’ defense has already recorded 12 takeaways this season, ranking fourth nationally in the category and exceeding their season total from 2021 (11 takeaways). Liberty also notched five sacks during last week’s 21-12 home win over Akron and held the Zips to one touchdown.
