At JSU’s weekly press conference on Monday, quarterback Eli Jenkins admitted he needed to Google the Liberty Flames football stadium to get a sense of the atmosphere the Gamecocks were playing in this Saturday. Jenkins said what he saw was impressive and after a quick search, it’s not hard to see why he was impressed. The Flames have one of the largest budgets in FCS football and one of the largest stadiums and attendance numbers. Liberty plays in Lynchburg, Virginia where JSU will get another playoff-like test and, as you can expect, they are excited about the challenge. (Hear from JSU head coach John Grass, quarterback Eli Jenkins and defensive end Joseph Roberts in the featured video).
The Gamecocks and Flames get underway at 6:00 pm CT on Saturday (Sept. 24) on ESPN3.
