Northern Arizona edges North Dakota 45-38Saturday, Oct 13, 2012
Zach Bauman ran for 176 yards and a touchdown early in the fourth quarter that broke a 31-31 tie. The Lumberjacks (5-1, 3-0 Big Sky), who won just four games last season, have their longest winning streak since 2008.
Braden Hanson threw three touchdown passes for North Dakota (3-4, 1-3) before leaving with an undisclosed injury. Marcus Hendrickson came in and threw a TD pass to Greg Hardin—his second of the game—to get North Dakota within 45-38 but that was it.
It was the schools’ first meeting since 1985.
