Checking in with one of Conference USA's newest members!

Joe’s on assignment, but Eric is joined by Liberty Flames Sideline Reporter Emily Austen as we take an early look at the programs set to join Conference USA following the 2022 season. Emily and Eric talk about Liberty’s rapid rise under Hugh Freeze, the environment in Lynchburg, and Eric and Emily reminisce over their days as high school classmates together in Tampa.

Where do the Flames go after Malik Willis’ fantastic stint in Lynchburg and subsequent departure for the NFL? Can Liberty football make an immediate impact as they join the new league? How do they change the perception of C-USA with their addition? What’s next for one of the youngest programs in FBS following their remarkable growth in the last half a decade? Happy football watching!
