If C-USA ever splits as is discussed here constantly, then yes, they would fit the new eastern conference.

Since C-USA will not be able to split like the Big East due to the change in continuity rules, it would be necessary for an existing conference to clear space for a C-USA split.

If we try to cannibalize Liberty's current conference, the Big South, nine schools would need to be relocated, as no other realistic candidates for FBS remain in the conference. If we turn our attention to the Atlantic Sun, there will be at most eight members to relocate. In the Atlantic Sun, three schools, at least by enrollment, would be candidates for FBS by 2024: Kennesaw State, North Florida, and Florida Gulf Coast.

If we move Liberty to the Atlantic Sun ahead of the C-USA split, the Big South takes USC Upstate to get back to 10 members.When C-USA splits, the Big South takes Jacksonville and Stetson, pushing the Big South to 12 membership and the Atlantic Sun to 7 members. Add the incoming C-USA schools and the Atlantic Sun could have up to 11 of its 14 members playing FBS football:

NJIT (non-football)/Old Dominion
WKU/Middle Tennessee
Liberty/Marshall
North Alabama (FCS)/Lipscomb (non-football)
Kennesaw State/Charlotte
North Florida/Florida Gulf Coast
FAU/FIU

As the western remnant of C-USA reloads, it may create further movement that finds homes for the remaining non-FBS members. Lipscomb and/or North Alabama would likely wind up in the OVC when C-USA or the Sun Belt takes Eastern Kentucky and/or Jacksonville State.

Their location, mission, and worldview makes them a perfect fit for the PAC12.

As a more serious answer, I think eventually C-USA could split into more geographically friendly conferences and one of those could scoop up Liberty and UMass. Liberty can overcome it's religious stigma by being successful at the gate.
