OK, so we’re a bit late at getting the highlights up from last Thursday’s game, but here they are. The Jacks had a big game on both sides of the ball. A large student crowd came out to support the team. The annual “Running of the Freshman” was a huge success as nearly 600 freshmen ran out of the tunnel with the team. NAU hits the road for the next four weeks, starting with ASU this weekend. We hope to see you back at the Skydome on Oct. 16 for Family Day when the Lumberjacks face the Montana State Bobcats. Enjoy the video!

The NAU football team opened its season with an easy 48-0 win over Div. II opponent Western New Mexico last night. It was a big coming out party for freshman running back Zach Bauman, who rushed for 167 yards and scored four touchdowns. Michael Herrick also threw two touchdowns in the first half. The NAU defense recorded its first shutout since 2007, holding the Mustangs to just 164 yards offense. Anthony Llanos led the team in tackles with six and Isaac Bond, Blayne Anderson, and Tim Wilkinson all recorded sacks. The Lumberjacks have some of the weekend off before beginning preparation for Arizona State next Saturday night in Tempe. Here are some pictures below Thursday night’s game in the Skydome.
