Liberty and Virginia Tech, two of the four FBS playing members in the Commonwealth of Virginia, will meet on Saturday afternoon in Lynchburg, Virginia at Williams Stadium. The teams will take to the field with heavy hearts, as they give honor to the University of Virginia football team and community after three football players were killed and two other students were injured in a shooting Sunday night.

“From our Liberty family and Liberty football family and administration and staff to the UVA family and staff and players, their entire campus, can’t imagine what they are feeling, going through, this morning,” Liberty head football coach Hugh Freeze said on Monday. “That’s nothing that a coach and administrators are really prepared for and teammates. They are in our prayers. We stand with them in any way to get through this very difficult time. Specifically praying for Coach Elliott as he leads through that because that’s got to be very, very challenging for him to do. From our Liberty family to theirs, you are in our prayers.”

Liberty will be all navy blue uniforms during the game Saturday against Virginia Tech, one of the primary colors of UVA. There will also be a moment of silence just a few minutes ahead of kickoff on Saturday, as the schools and teams remember the lives of Lavel Davis, Jr., Devin Chandler, and D’Sean Perry.

Liberty’s football team will also be taking the field with a Commonwealth of Virginia flag. Both teams, accompanied by several other college football teams in Virginia, will also be wearing helmet decals while 20,000 “United With The Hoos” stickers will be handed out to the fans in attendance.

“We’ve been working with Virginia Tech and some of the other football programs in the state to make sure it is a coordinated effort to make sure everyone knows we are supporting and we are thinking of UVA at this time,” said Liberty Director of Athletics Ian McCaw on Thursday.
