VMI v. Liberty
As mentioned in another Championship Week post, the Big South is pretty interesting this year, with at least three quality teams (Radford, VMI, Liberty) and lots of personality. VMI (first to 100 points, wins) and Liberty (home of a Curry brother!) have quite a bit of that personality.
