LYNCHBURG - Liberty definitely finished better than they started in 2012. First year coach Turner Gill saw his Flames open the season with four consecutive losses to Wake Forest, Norfolk State, Montana, and Lehigh. LU then won six of its final seven games.
This season, on paper, the non-conference schedule isn't as demanding. LU opens at Kent State and then has home games against Monmouth, Morgan State, and Kentucky Wesleyan to go along with road games at Richmond and Old Dominion. The Flames will also host Brevard in November.
Since Stony Brook left the Big South, teams were forced to only play five conference games.
