LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Antonio Gandy-Golden caught two of Stephen Calvert's four touchdown passes, and Liberty coach Hugh Freeze collected his first win with the Flames in a 35-17 victory over Buffalo on Saturday night.
Calvert was 23 of 30 for 325 yards passing, and Gandy-Golden finished with eight receptions for 174 yards that included many spectacular catches. Gandy-Golden made an over-the-shoulder, two-handed catch then jumped over his defender at the goal line for a 36-yard score in the second quarter. On the Flames' next series, he beat safety Tyrone Hill to the ball for a 30-yard catch, setting up Frankie Hickson's 1-yard touchdown run one play later.
Gandy-Golden made a finger-tip catch around the Bulls 20-yard line, and then dragged two defenders with him into the end zone for a 55-yard touchdown, pushing the Flames (1-2) to a 35-10 lead late in the third quarter.
