ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Liberty University announced Thursday, December 3, that the school’s football program has put all team-related activities on pause.

According to a press release from Liberty, the university is seeing COVID-19 cases within the football program increase.

“Today’s announcement brings to a close Liberty’s regular-season schedule,” reads a portion of the update emailed to WDBJ7.

The Liberty Flames were scheduled to finish out the 11-game schedule with a game against Coastal Carolina at Brooks Stadium in Conway, South Carolina this Saturday.
