Northern Arizona at UNLV

N. Arizona 17, UNLV 14


LAS VEGAS (AP) - Kicker Andy Wilder hit a game-winning 33-yard field goal with 12 seconds to go as Northern Arizona went on the road and shocked UNLV 17-14 on Saturday night.

It was Northern Arizona's (1-1) first win over an FBS team in 25 years.

After UNLV (0-2) was charged with a personal foul, Northern Arizona quarterback Chase Cartwright hooked up with Ify Umodo on a 30-yard strike to give the Lumberjacks a first down with 21 seconds to go on the Rebels 16. The play gave Wilder a chance to play hero and he did so.

Zach Bauman carried the ball 20 times for 109 yards and a touchdown, the only offensive TD of the night for the Lumberjacks.

The Rebels defeated Northern Arizona 40-7 the last time these two teams hooked up in 1992.

UNLV led 14-0 at half time before the Lumberjacks scored 17 unanswered points for the upset victory.
