On Wednesday Head Coach Jerome Souers announced that the NAU Football Annual Blue-White Spring Game on April 27th will be broadcast live both regionally on Fox Sports Arizona and nationally on Fox College Sports. This is a first for NAU Football and is a VERY rare occurrence for Football Championship Subdivision Schools.
Historically, Football Bowl Subdivision schools, and more specifically, schools belonging to the six major BCS conferences have been the only schools to have their spring games televised on a national level. NAU and NAU Athletics has been fortunate enough to have a great relationship with Fox Sports Arizona which will allow this production to take place. The “Voice of the Lumberjacks” Mitch Strohman will handle the play-by-play calling duties along with color commentator and NAU Football Alumni Keven Stephens and sideline reporter Reggie Eccleston. The broadcast will begin at 2:30 pm and will run until 4:00 pm leading into Fox Sports Arizona’s telecast of the Colorado Rockies vs Arizona Diamondbacks game that evening. Below are more details about the event. We hope to see everyone there!

Due to some technical problems with our Blog and our Flickr account we were not able to upload the photos from the Cal Poly game. We are sincerely sorry about that, however they are finally up!

On Saturday the Lumberjacks returned home and welcomed the Thunderbirds of Southern Utah. The game was a hard fought thriller and one the Lumberjacks eventually dropped in the third overtime. A full recap of the game can be found here. The Lumberjacks are back at home next Saturday, November 17, to host Cal Poly for a 4:05 kickoff. The Lumberjacks can win at least a share of the 2012 Big Sky Conference title with a win.
