The full 2022 Liberty football schedule has been released. The schedule is highlighted by a home slate that includes BYU and Virginia Tech.
The season begins on September 3rd with Liberty travelling to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to take on the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. The previously announced home-and-home series begins in 2020 when Southern Miss visits Lynchburg on October 24th. The home opener is on the following weekend, September 10th, when UAB visits the Flames. This series was also previously announced, with the Blazers hosting Liberty on October 22nd, 2021.
Liberty will hit the road in week 3 against ACC opponent Wake Forest, the first of 3 games scheduled between the two teams. This series was also announced previously, with other dates in 2025 (in Lynchburg) and 2026 (in Winston-Salem).
The 2nd home game of the 2022 season will be on September 24th against Akron. This is the first time this series has been mentioned, and is likely part of a larger series. Liberty returns to face Old Dominion in Norfolk on October 1st, in a game that was previously announced to be on September 24th. After meeting in Liberty’s first FBS game this past season, the two FBS foes in the state of Virginia will also meet in Lynchburg in 2021.
