LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Desmond Rice ran for three touchdowns, two in the second quarter, to carry Liberty past Presbyterian, 35-14 Saturday.
The win keeps Liberty (6-4, 3-1 Big South) in the hunt for the conference title, with a potential first-place showdown looming in the regular season finale against first-place Charleston Southern in two weeks.
Josh Woodrum put the Flames on the board early in the first quarter, finding Darrin Peterson with a sideline pass that turned into a 20-yard touchdown. Rice, who carried 22 times for 96 yards, bulled in from the 1 to make it 14-0 in the second quarter, then broke around right end to make it 21-7 at intermission.
South Carolina's loss to The Citadel, coupled with Georgia and Florida struggling in tight victories, was an embarrassment for the conference.
