I don't think so. Assuming both are wins, only one counts I believe.

If there are not enough 6 win teams we can count them. I highly doubt we get to 6 wins. I’m really concerned for that Idaho St game. They’ve won some games against tough FCS teams North Dakota and Northern Arizona. The played Cal pretty well. I said this off-season that was the game I was most concerned about losing.
I also think beating NMSU twice will be very difficult. We may do it, but again, I think it'll be hard.

Very much agreed on NMSU. We rarely see this in college football. But in the NFL: Unless there’s a hidden talent-disparity, or some severe injuries affecting one team, it’s really tough for teams that are, overall, evenly-matched to go 2-0 against another team. Obviously it happens, but less often than you’d think. Again, though, that’s NFL, with all the various changes and different elements they have, compared to LU/NMSU. It will be interesting to watch.

I didn’t realize that Idaho State was so dangerous. Hopefully the Flames’ staff will have the team prepared. One of the things coaches have to watch out for is playin down to the competition. Sucks when it happens. But it happens.

Heh. The first time I knew Liberty was interested in football was when they hired Sam Rutigliano as HC. That was 30 years ago this December. From that moment, to beating ODU 52-10... y’all have come a long way.

We've come a long way way, that's for sure. The school was founded in 1971 so we're behind almost everyone else who have made history, tradition, and connections from over 100 years ago. Wish there was a fast way to gain all those but winning big and often are the only ways.
