Yes. Louisville will schedule Liberty. UofL and Liberty have already faced each other in several NCAA and Club sports in the past few years. There is no reason they wouldn't and recent history saying they would.

I said never.

This has more to do with our scheduling philosophy playing Midwest/East Coast teams in the non-conference than anything else. The only private schools we put on the schedule are Northwestern and Boston College.

We've done Louisiana, UNT and Florida Atlantic for recruiting but that is as low as we will go.

I didn't answer. Never is a long time, but I don't see USA doing so for a variety of reasons, most notably a lack of upside for USA. We don't recruit South Central Virginia. Liberty probably wants to recruit South Alabama. Either way, USA doesn't really have any space on our schedule for quite some time. We only have home games available (which we will probably fill with lower end FCS programs in payday games) until 2023.

Not anytime soon, but never is a long time.
With that said I do hope they do well.

Really doubt it. I don't see a reason to. They would probably want a home-and-home deal and we don't recruit in that region so there's no benefit over playing a Sun Belt or C-USA team in areas where our coaches have recruiting connections.

We probably will but it will be a home game only because we can afford it.

Honestly anybody from Georgia through the NE would be stupid not to. I went to the semifinals of the Big South baseball tournament in Lexington, SC last year and Liberty brought a pretty good crowd for a Friday afternoon baseball game. If they'll travel like that for baseball I'd love to see what they would bring to a football game.

It seems like the priority in the MAC is to schedule P5 teams at home if possible or payday games. Then look at Army, UMass, BYU, MWC or AAC.

If desperate then an SBC/CUSA school. Some of the SBC/CUSA at the bottom of the food chain will have to resort to Liberty. New Mexico State maybe.

NCSU and the rest of the ACC will be looking for Home games. Look for schools like UVA,BC, Wake and Duke do 2 for 1 games. Marshall, ODU, Coastal, App and Charlotte will probably do home and home. I would not be surprised if BYU tries to help Liberty as well with some scheduling.
