Liberty takes advantage of VMI turnovers in 54-14 win

The #16 Liberty Flames took advantage of eight VMI turnovers and defeated the Keydets 54-14 in VMI’s Big South season finale, played Saturday evening before a crowd of 15,208 at Williams Stadium in Lynchburg.

The eight turnovers were a season-high for the Keydets, as the six fumbles and two interceptions led to 30 Liberty points.

The Keydets outgained Liberty in total yards, 335-334, and led early 7-0 on a Kyle Hughes-to-Mario Scott 48-yard touchdown pass 1:17 into the game. But four first-half turnovers doomed the Keydets as Liberty rolled to a 24-7 halftime lead.

Four fourth-quarter turnovers aided a 27-point Liberty fourth quarter to blow open what was still a close game heading into the final period.
