CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Liberty blocked the potential
game-tying PAT and Kevin Moon returned it 90 yards for a 2-point
conversion to preserve a 43-40 victory over Chattanooga on
Chattanooga (2-8) dominated the game but the Flames (5-5) won it
with special teams, which accounted for Liberty's first 27 points
and the decisive final two.
Erick Harris returned two punts for touchdowns covering 52 and
57 yards, a first in school history. On the kickoff after his
second TD the ball was stripped from Chattanooga's Michael Gilmore
and returned 22 yards for a touchdown by Alonzia Phillips.
Liberty's special teams also set up an offensive score with a
long kickoff return.
Chattanooga fought back behind Cedric Stevens, who completed 34
of 44 passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns. His last TD
covered 70 yards to Tyrus Ward with 2:08 left to play.
The touchdown cut Liberty's lead to 41-40 and the Mocs lined up
for the point after that would have tied it. But Seth Reichart
blocked the kick and Moon took it all the way back to seal the win.
