Syracuse vs. Liberty updates: Live NCAA Football game scores, results for Saturday

Live scores, highlights and updates from the Syracuse vs. Liberty football game

After a three-game homestead, the Liberty Flames will be on the road. They will take on the Syracuse Orange at noon ET on Saturday at Carrier Dome. Liberty is coming into the matchup with an unblemished 4-0 record.

You’re bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that’s exactly how it played out for the Flames last week. They blew past the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks 40-7. That 33-point margin sets a new team best for Liberty on the season. Liberty QB Malik Willis was slinging it as he accumulated 177 passing yards in addition to rushing for one TD and 87 yards.

Meanwhile, ‘Cuse came up short against the Duke Blue Devils last week, falling 38-24. WR Taj Harris put forth a good effort for the losing side as he caught six passes for one TD and 138 yards. That receiving effort made it the first game that Harris has posted more than 100 yards receiving.

‘Cuse’s defense was a presence as well, as it collected one interception and three fumbles. That interception came courtesy of LB Mikel Jones with 6:07 remaining in the third quarter.

Liberty is now a perfect 4-0 while the Orange sit at 1-3. A couple numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Flames enter the game with only one thrown interception, good for ninth best in the nation. But ‘Cuse enters the contest having picked the ball off seven times, good for first in the nation. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
