LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Corbin Jackson leaped just high enough to get his right hand up to block a 23-yard field goal attempt as time expired to secure Liberty's 42-41 win over Indiana State on Saturday night.
It appeared Liberty (3-0) had won when Indiana State's Cade Sparks threw incomplete on fourth down with 1:04 left in the game, but Liberty had called time out and the Sycamores got another chance from Liberty's 48.
Sparks responded with three straight completions, setting up Jerry Nunez to boot the game winner. But Jackson got the block.
Liberty freshman kicker Alex Probert had a 48-yard field goal attempt hit the crossbar with 1:57 left, opening the door for the Sycamores (0-3).
Sparks threw for 405 yards and two scores.
