Go to this link for a very fair preview article from the LU FCS beat  writer here in Lynchburg.

Just six days remain until kickoff on Long Island for the Big South championship game between Liberty and Stony Brook. As far as I can tell, this marks the first time that two Big South teams have been undefeated heading into the final game of the season. And one thing is for certain this time: Thereís no consolation prize involved. No one gets a share of the title this year without winning this game, and thatís great for the conference.

Whatís on the line? Obviously, a spot in the FCS playoffs. The winner gets in, the loser goes home. To reiterate, neither team will get to seven Division I wins without winning this game, so neither will be in play for an at-large berth. I know, I know. Itís a suggestion, not a requirement. Well, Iím suggesting that no FCS team has ever received an at-large bid without getting to seven DI wins, and that wonít change this year.

I think a lot of those numbers are misleading. For whatever it's worth, Priore thought that Gardner Webb had the best run defense that we would see outside of Buffalo and Utep.
