Rutgers added another opponent to its 2o19 schedule, as the Scarlet Knights will be hosting Liberty at High Point Solutions Stadium.
Liberty is currently competing in the FCS and the B1G has cut ties with scheduling potential opponents from that level. However, the Flames will be joining the FBS in 2018 as a provisional member before becoming a full member in 2019.
The announcement of the match-up was released on Saturday:

This will be the second nonconference game Rutgers has scheduled for the 2019 season. Boston College is also on slate and is currently set for Sept. 21. Both of the games will be in Piscataway.
The date for the game with Liberty has been scheduled for Oct. 26.
