According to Rocco Miller, Liberty will play host to Delaware State on December 6, 2021 at Liberty Arena. This is only the second confirmed non-conference home date so far for this coming season as the Flames will also host Missouri on December 2.
Delaware State finished last season 3-16 overall and 1-11 in the MEAC. This will be only the second ever meeting between the Flames and Hornets with Liberty losing 96-73 during the 1990-91 season. Delaware State is entering their first season under head coach Stan Waterman.

Additionally, the Flames will play at LSU on Nov. 15, host Missouri at Liberty Arena on Dec. 2, face Stephen F Austin in Dallas on Dec. 11, play East Carolina in Charlotte on Dec. 17, and compete in the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii Dec. 22-25.
