The Monarchs trailed 17-7 in the fourth quarter, but Aaron Evans returned a punt 64-yards for a touchdown with 4:22 remaining in the game to put ODU within three at 17-14.

The Old Dominion defense, which held Liberty to 17 points and the second lowest output of the season, stopped Liberty and forced a punt to give ODU the ball back at the 27-yardline with 1:20 to play in the game to set up the game-winning touchdown.

Liberty drove to the ODU 35, but Fellonte Misher batted down a hail mary attempt from Josh Woodrum.
