LYNCHBURG, Va. -- Nick Sigmon returned an interception for a touchdown as Liberty's defense forced five turnovers in a 28-14 win over Stony Brook Saturday.

After Maysonet's 13-yard touchdown run early in the fourth cut the lead to 21-14, Sigmon forced Maysonet to fumble. Jacob Hagen scooped up the loose ball and returned it 44 yards for a score.
Miguel Maysonet's 1-yard run put Stony Brook (9-2, 5-1 Big South) ahead early in the first quarter.
Brian Hudson answered for Liberty (5-5, 4-1) in the second, connecting with Desmond Rice for a 49-yard touchdown strike, and later running it in himself on a quarterback draw to help Liberty build a 14-7 halftime lead.
