It’s finally December, and that means it’s time for end of the year football for all of those teams that failed to gain Bowl eligibility. In this mathcup, we have the Norfolk State Spartans traveling to Lynchburg to take on the Liberty Flames live from Williams Stadium.
The Spartans are coming off a 44-27 loss to Morgan State, while the Flames beat New Mexico State 28-21. Liberty are the heavy favorites coming into this game, and I highly doubt they will let down their fans in this one.
Norfolk State Spartans
It’s been a rough year for the Spartans, as they hope to close out their season with an improbable win on the road against Liberty. The Spartans have dropped five of their last six games coming into Saturday, and it really looks like they will lose another one here.
The Spartans offense has almost been nonexistent this year, having been shut out twice, and they have failed to score more than 20 points three other times. Their season high was 54, but that was an anomaly, as their season average is 19 points per game. Defensively they aren’t too bad, giving up an average of 24.8 points per game, which was in part to their rough stretch of performances over the last five weeks.
In their last game against Morgan State, the Spartans moved the ball extremely well through the air, 30-47 for 476 yards, but their running game wasn’t so good. They only attempted to run the ball 16 times, but they only did that at a 2.9 yard per carry clip for 46 yards on the ground. They should stick to their air assault against Liberty if they want to stand a chance in this game.
Liberty has now dropped three out of their last four games as they try to finish off the season with a two game winning streak and end up at .500 for the season. What better opponent to have than Norfolk State to accomplish that season ending goal.
This Liberty offense has been pretty good this year, only getting shut out once, by Auburn, and only scoring less than 10 points one other time to North Texas. They have averaged 31.5 points per game this year, while their defense has averaged 38.6 points against. Luckily they are facing the dormant offense of the Spartans this week.
Liberty gave up more yards than they gained last week against New Mexico State, but they made the most of their 295 total yards in the win. The Flames defense picked off the Aggies twice, and with them going up against a pass heavy offense like Norfolk State, expect that number to be about the same if not more this weekend.

Norfolk State simply will get outclassed in this game against Liberty. Defensively, they have been competent this year, but offensively, they just don’t have the muster to get a win in this game.
Take Liberty to win this game at home and finish the year at .500. Take them to cover the spread as well, and take the OVER in this one. Good luck.
