It was a disappointing weekend for the Liberty Flames, falling to Army, 31-16 as the team concluded the regular season at 7-5 with three consecutive losses to to finish the season. The Flames are bowl eligible for a third consecutive season and will likely be heading to a bowl game next month. There are 83 bowl-eligible teams for 82 bowl spots, meaning someone will not go bowling. Here’s a look at what bowls Liberty is currently being projected into.

The Flames are looking to return to a bowl game for the third straight season after Hugh Freeze led the program to bowl appearances in its first two seasons as a full FBS member. Liberty has only made an appearance in the Cure Bowl in Orlando, Florida, winning that game against a Sun Belt opponent in each of the past two seasons. In 2019, the Flames knocked off Georgia Southern, and in 2020 Liberty defeated former Big South rival Coastal Carolina in overtime.

Liberty is currently in the midst of a multi-year agreement with ESPN Events which could place the Flames in one of at least six bowl games: Boca Raton Bowl (FAU Stadium; Boca Raton, Fla.), Camellia Bowl (Cramton Bowl; Montgomery, Ala.), , Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Albertsons Stadium; Boise, Idaho), Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl (Toyota Stadium; Frisco, Texas), Myrtle Beach Bowl (Brooks Stadium; Conway, S.C.) and New Mexico Bowl (Dreamstyle Stadium; Albuquerque, N.M.).

We will continue to monitor the bowl situation and the projections for the Flames throughout the week. Next Sunday, Dec. 5 is Selection Sunday for the College Football Playoff and New Year’s Six bowl games with the rest of the bowl selections to be finalized shortly thereafter.
