UMass Hosts Liberty For Senior Day-Homecoming Combo

FloFootball’s season-long coverage of UMass football continues this week with a senior day-homecoming combo in Amherst on Saturday.

Who: Liberty (4-3) at Massachusetts (3-6)

When: Saturday, Nov. 3, 3:30 PM ET

Where: Amherst, Mass., Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium

Watch: LIVE on FloFootball

The Minutemen engineered a come-from-behind victory over UConn last week, thanks, in large part, to a season-best 148 rushing yards on 26 carries by senior running back Marquis Young.

Liberty moved back above .500 with a 48-41 victory over Idaho State on Saturday. The Flames benefitted from a standout performance from their running back, as well, as Frankie Hickson totaled 133 yards and three scores in the win.

Previte Is On The Burlsworth Watch List

Redshirt senior defensive end Joe Previte is one of 69 nominees for the Brandon Burlsworth Trophy, awarded to the nation's top former walk-on.

The Brockton, Mass., native spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons as a walk-on before earning a scholarship prior to the start of 2016. He is in his second year as a starter on the defensive line.

Previte has totaled 27 tackles and 4 TFLs through nine games in 2018—both of which are single-season career bests.

Calvert Takes Aim At Liberty's Record Book

Liberty quarterback Stephen Calvert has posted five 300-yard games this season and is one of three FBS juniors with more than 7,000 career passing yards and over 60 career passing touchdowns. 

Calvert needs just five more passing touchdowns to break the Liberty career record.

Isabella Continues To Shine

Andy Isabella put his electric speed on full display each time UMass has appeared on FloFootball, and we have no reason to expect anything different this time around.

The 5-foot-10, 195-pound Isabella ranks third nationally with 121.2 receiving yards per game, and is tied for fifth in receptions per game (7.6) and touchdown grabs (9).
