Liberty sets 2023 nonconference football schedule

liberty basketballLiberty’s adjusted 2023 non-conference football schedule is set, giving the Flames seven home games for the first time since 2013.

The non-conference portion of Liberty’s 2023 schedule will feature home games against Bowling Green (Sept. 2), Old Dominion (Sept. 30) and UMass (Nov. 18) and a road contest at Buffalo (Sept. 16).

With three home non-conference games in 2023 and four scheduled home Conference USA games, Liberty will have a seven-game home schedule for the fifth time in program history (also in 1980, 1990, 2008 and 2013).

Since making its announcement about its move to Conference USA in November 2021, Liberty’s Senior Associate AD for Internal Operations Mickey Guridy has had to work to deconstruct Liberty’s future football schedule.

The Flames had already announced fully completed FBS independent schedules through the 2024 season and single games all the way through the 2030 season.

Guridy, along with the help from Gridiron’s Dave Brown, has worked with all of Liberty’s previously scheduled opponents to amend or cancel future planned matchups that best meet the current scheduling needs of both programs.
