Lumberjacks look for third straight win over top 5 E. Wash. on FOX Sports Arizona Plus

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — After a high-scoring home opener last weekend, No. 25 Northern Arizona looks to build its win streak at home, as it welcomes No. 5 Eastern Washington on Saturday.

The matchup of ranked teams will air live on FOX Sports Arizona Plus and FOX Sports Go at 4 p.m.

The Lumberjacks are the only team in the Big Sky to beat the Eagles twice in the last three years. Both times the Eagles were ranked in the top four in the FCS. The last time the two teams played each other in Flagstaff was in 2014, when NAU scored a game-winning touchdown with 12 seconds left on the clock.

The NAU offense is coming off a game in which it scored 73 points against New Mexico Highlands. Quarterback Case Cookus threw for seven touchdowns in a single game for the second straight season. He completed 14 of 25 passes for 296 passing yards. He threw a touchdown ever two completed passes.

Emmanuel Butler caught a career-high five touchdown passes to tie the NAU single-game record.

Eastern Washington is coming off a last-second fake field goal that resulted in a touchdown and win over then-No. 10 Northern Iowa at home. Missing the game was All-American WR Cooper Kupp, who is considered a game-time decision against the Lumberjacks.
