President Donald Trump made the commencement address at Liberty University Saturday. In doing so, he took the opportunity to announce some of the school’s upcoming football opponents.

Liberty is moving up from the FCS to the FBS in 2018.

And Trump also took the opportunity to needle school president Jerry Falwell Jr. about the schedule. He questioned Liberty’s chances to win, especially against SEC foes Auburn (2018) and Ole Miss (2021).

Said Trump: “Auburn? Jerry, you sure you know what you’re doing? Jerry … Auburn?”
