Current Records: Liberty 4-2-0; Maine 2-4-0

What to Know

Liberty has had a week off and is no doubt ready to get back on the field. They will take on Maine at 6 p.m. ET on Saturday at Williams Stadium. The Flames are coming into the game hot, having won four in a row.

Two weeks ago, Liberty had a touchdown and change to spare in a 20-13 win over New Mexico State. No one put up better numbers for Liberty than RB Joshua Mack, who really brought his A game. He picked up 113 yards on the ground on 16 carries and caught two passes for 64 yards. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Mack has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season.

Meanwhile, Maine was the 28-9 winner over Richmond when they last met November of last year. Last week? They had no such luck. Maine fell to Richmond 24-17. What made the loss an especially bitter pill for the Black Bears to swallow was that they had been favored by 14.5 points coming into the contest.

This next matchup looks promising for the Flames, who are favored by a full 12.5 points. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.

Liberty's victory lifted them to 4-2 while Maine's defeat dropped them down to 2-4. We'll see if Liberty's success rolls on or if the Black Bears are able to steal their positive momentum.
