LYNCHBURG, Va. – Liberty quarterback Josh Woodrum completed a key fourth down pass with 2:32 left in the game and later hit B.J. Farrrow for a 40-yard touchdown to lead the Flames to a 24-21 upset win over #4 Coastal Carolina Thursday night at Williams Stadium before a national ESPNEWS telecast.
The Flames (6-5, 3-3) were down four, 21-17, to the Chanticleers (9-2, 4-2) with 3:59 left in the game after a De'Angelo Henderson touchdown. Woodrum finished the game completing 19-of-30 passes for 262 yards and two touchdowns.
Quarterback Alex Ross topped the 300-yard plateau for total offense for the 15th time in his career to tie former Flame Mike Brown for the Big South all-time record. Ross completed 17-of-32 passes for 325 yards and added 14 yards rushing.
His top target was Jones, who hauled in six passes for 168 yards, including the key 83-yard gain to set up Coastal's score late in the fourth quarter and stand as the second-longest pass play in CCU history. The 168 receiving yards is the third-most in CCU history, trailing Jerome Simpson's 207 in 2006 and John Israel's 174 in 2014.
Henderson, who had a 71-yard TD run earlier in the game, finished with 132 all-purpose yards, rushing for 89 and hauling in three passes for 43 yards.
