Exclamation Who is the first school to schedule a game at Liberty?
So Liberty got what they wanted: FBS. Now, the hard part. Getting FBS schools to play them at their 19,000 capacity stadium. Who's first? CCU? GSU? UMASS? NM St?

New Mexico.---shocking. Doesn't make sense for either school.

RE: Who is the first school to schedule a game at Liberty?
I say Charlotte, CCU, ODU or APP. I predict Wake will be the first P5. Getting four FBS games will be easy with CUSA, MAC and SB teams. I would be shocked if LIBERTY, NMSU and UMASS don't sign a five to six year deal for home and home immediately helping each schools meet the requirement. BYU I believe helped UMASS, I would not be shocked if BYU signs to play a H/H. I doubt Liberty has any issue getting four FBS home games with an FCS game every season.

Is 4 FBS games the minimum? So 5 total, but only 4 have to be FBS....that's probably doable. Everyone keeps talking about how much money Liberty has so could they pay more money then the standard amount for cash strapped schools to play them?
Cheers!

If I was Liberty I'd be on the phone to the MWC schools who get the extra game because of the Hawaii exception. I'd also pay extra for schools like BYU. That would be huge for their program to get BYU at home.

Cheers!

I would guess the first P5 team to do so would be Miami FL. They have no problems playing home and home with G5 opponents. They played at Appalachian state this year.

If I'm not mistaken, for the 2018 season our capacity should be 25,000 and no later than 2019. After that we'll see how the crowds are. We may bump that up to 35,000 following 2019.
