PAT’S THOUGHTS:

Looked LONG and hard at this one. It is still on my radar as a Fishy Five selection. Liberty is in a huge let-down spot after beating ODU at home for their first win in D1 history. Now they have to travel to Army, play in a the dreariest place in the America, and have to defend the option. Don’t forget, Army is damn good too. They won 10 games last year. What scares me though is they lost their QB and 4/5 of their OL. However, I do love that the pub is all over Liberty as they are getting 60%+ of the tickets and 75%+ of the money.
