Liberty 43, UT-Chattanooga 40

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 Saturday.

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.
