Lumberjack Football Ranked No. 14 in the Polls
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – The Northern Arizona football team moved up to No. 14 in this week's national polls. Both The Sports Network and FCS Coaches Poll have NAU slated in the top 15 after the Lumberjacks earned their third straight win.
The Lumberjacks were able to grab a 17-13 victory on the road at Cal Poly this past weekend. The win improved NAU's overall record to 6-2 and moved the Lumberjacks into third place in the conference standings with a 4-1 mark.
NAU's defense was solid once again as they stopped the Mustangs on fourth-and-1 with five minutes left to play, followed by an Austin Hasquet interception with two minutes to go that gave NAU possession of the ball and ultimately the win.
NAU returns home to the Walkup Skydome on Saturday, Nov. 2 for its Hall of Fame Game versus North Dakota. Kickoff is set for 4:05 p.m.
