On December 21, Antonio Gandy-Golden and Liberty defeated Georgia Southern 23 to 16 in the FBC Mortgage Cure Bowl. Liberty joined the FBS in 2018 and Gandy-Golden proved in those two seasons that he would remain productive even with the step up in competition.
Gandy-Golden was an unheralded prospect. He wasn’t ranked by 247Sports and he was only ranked as a two-star prospect by Rivals. His offer list only featured FCS programs.
