ODU vs. Liberty
Looking at the schedule throughout college football this rivalry weekend really makes me wonder why ODU and Liberty aren’t going to play each other on this weekend going forward? It just makes sense. In state teams, easy fan travel, both teams can play and be home at a reasonable time. Neither team has a current rival. This game just makes sense. Why isn’t it happening?

RE: ODU vs. Liberty
ODU should be playing a conference game at this time of the year. That's the biggest reason. Aside from no history with each other, it would make sense for us to end the season together for the foreseeable future. UMass makes a ton of sense, as would any other independent.

I don’t know. If you look across the nation, there are a number of non-conference rival games going on. It is true though, we have no history yet with ODU.

The SEC and ACC are about the only conferences that don't have an exclusive conference schedule for rivalry week since there is such an overlap between the two. Notre Dame is about the only exception for every other conference (which affects another PAC 12 school by nature).

RE: ODU vs. Liberty
I think we should try to play ODU every year but I don’t think the last week would work. If we got into CUSA they probably would shift the game but until then I doubt it. Why not open the season with them so it’s something to look forward to every year. I agree that UMASS should be our last game yearly.

I think LU vs. ODU and UVa vs. VT should be a double header. One played at 3:00 and the other at 7:00. Of course not in the same place.

Sadly, we only have ODU on the schedule in 21 and 22.

I think this would hurt LU and ODU as fans of multiple schools would have to pick between attending one or the other and that wouldn't be the LU-ODU game. ODU played Rice on rivalry weekend but I think C-USA should have partnered ODU with Marshall or Charlotte. If ODU and LU played in rivalry week, another C-USA school would be on a bye or playing a non-conference opponent. It's just easier for the conference to schedule conference games as they currently are.

RE: ODU vs. Liberty
I suppose that’s true. I at one time was primarily a fan of another ACC team. But in recent years have been primarily an LU fan first. But I do see how both games on the same day could hurt attendance.

LU vs. ODU and UVa vs. VT should be played on Thanksgiving and Black Friday alternating.

I think it’s time to have OD and Liberty in the same conference, whatever that conference may be.

I’d love for that to happen. I think we both bring a lot to the table for any conference.

I think the most likely scenario is the eastern Sun Belt and eastern C-USA schools coming together and the other halves coming together. Where we fit, I am not sure. Maybe Marshall goes to the MAC and we fit in their place.

I’m going to go with LU staying independent and wait to see all that is going to change from conferences and tv deals. Right now we need to grow in all of our athletic programs and continue to expose ourselves nationally.
