Below are Mitch & Kevin’s calls from NAU’s upset of UNLV on Saturday. Enjoy!
On Saturday night the NAU Lumberjacks stormed into Sam Boyd Stadium and upset the UNLV Rebels 17-14. The game was a hard fought affair and one that NAU actually trailed in 14-0 early in the second quarter. The Lumberjacks however continued to play hard and disciplined and climbed back into the contest thanks to an Austin Shanks 75 yard punt return early in the third quarter and a Zach Bauman touchdown in the fourth quarter. Junior kicker Andy Wilder nailed a 33 yard field goal with 12 second left on the clock. The defense continued to hold on and NAU beat a Football Bowl Subdivision team (FBS – formerly Division 1-A) for the first time in a quarter of a century. Here is the full game summary. Enjoy some photos from the contest below and on the Flickr page. More content from the game to come tomorrow!
On Saturday, April 28th, NAU Football held their Blue-White Spring Game on the upper practice fields. It was a chance for both the offense and defense to demonstrate what they hey had been working on all spring and how much they have improved since the fall. The game remained close and went back and forth until the end when the offense began to pull away. The offense was led on the day by none other than running back Zach Bauman. However, interceptions by freshman corner Marcus Alford and freshman safety Robert Watson kept the defense in the game. The offense mounted a few late scoring drives to pull away and win the game, 62-53. For more information on the game, please click here.
A special thanks to everyone who made the Spring Game such a great event and thanks to everyone who came out!
