On Friday October 11th and Saturday October 12th the NAU Lumberjacks traveled to Sacramento, CA to take on the Sacramento State Hornets for a Big Sky Conference match up.

After that, Sacramento State reeled off 28 unanswered points to put the Lumberjacks in a 31-14, 17 point hole. The Lumberjacks turned to junior quarterback Chase Cartwright who rallied the offense to climb back in the game and eventually take a 39-38 lead which would prove to be the final score. Cartwright finished 16 of 19 for 208 yards and three touchdowns. Senior running back Zach Bauman had 27 carries for 196 yards and two touchdowns. The defense was paced by linebacker Austin Hasquet who tallied 10 total tackles and Lucky Dozier who tallied two eight total tackles and a key interception in the fourth quarter.

NAU took on the University of Arizona Wildcats on Friday night (August 30th) down in Tucson. It was the 13th match-up in history between the two schools and NAU went into the game feeling very confident. NAU finished the 2012 season 8-3 and have 19 starters returning for the 2013 season.
On Friday night, the Jacks trailed Arizona only 14-0 at half, however some costly mistakes in the second half cost the Jacks as the final would prove to be 35-0. The Lumberjacks have a bye next week (9/7) and then travel to Davis, California to take on the Aggies of UC Davis in a non-conference contest.
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!
