LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Dexter Robbins blocked Paul Schumacher’s 36-yard field goal attempt in overtime to secure Liberty’s 23-20 win over Gardner-Webb on Saturday to stay unbeaten in Big South Conference play.

Alex Probert redeemed his missed field goal at the end of regulation by converting a 34-yarder to give Liberty the lead in overtime, 23-20.

Gardner-Webb’s overtime possession stalled at the Liberty 19.

Jaylan Foster intercepted a Stephen Calvert pass and ran 42 yards for a touchdown at the start of the second half to give the Bulldogs (3-6, 1-2) a 13-7 lead, but Probert converted field goals of 29 and 21 yards to tie the game with 11:08 left in the fourth quarter.

Calvert fired a 29-yard touchdown pass to Dante Shells to put Liberty (5-3, 3-0) up, 20-13. Gardner-Webb answered when Tyrell Maxwell scored from 8-yards out with 3:05 left to make it 20-20.
