Liberty and Wake Forest will meet on the gridiron on Saturday in Winston Salem, North Carolina as part of a sold out game that will air on the ACC Network. However, that might be the last time the two programs meet in the near future.
The Demon Deacons and the Flames have mutually agreed to cancel their future home-and-home football series, according to a release by Wake Forest athletics on Friday.
Liberty was schedule to play Wake Forest to open the 2025 season in Lynchburg at Williams Stadium before finalizing the original three-game series that is included with this weekend’s game in Winston Salem on Sept. 5, 2026.
“Wake Forest and Liberty recently mutually agreed to cancel the 2025 and 2026 games previously set for Lynchburg and Winston-Salem, respectively,” Wake Forest athletics director John Currie said in a statement.
With Liberty’s move to Conference USA beginning with the 2023 season, the Flames must purge their schedule to make room for eight conference game and more moves will continue to trickle out in the coming weeks and months.
As of now, Liberty’s 2025 non-conference slate includes trips to Army (9/20) and Old Dominion (10/4) with home games scheduled against UMass (11/1) and ETSU (TBD). The 2026 non-conference schedule currently includes home games with Ball State (9/26) and Army (11/28) and road games against UMass (11/7) and Marshall (TBD).
