Arizona found itself in a tight matchup with Northern Arizona early Saturday night.

The Wildcats held a 14-3 lead going into the locker room at the halftime break, but the Lumberjacks opened the third quarter with a drive. They began at their own 25 and drove all the way to the Arizona 4-yard-line. An incompletion on third-and-goal brought up a fourth and, to help its angle, NAU took a delay to set up a 26-yard field goal attempt.

Ta’ita’i Uiagalelei and Tacario Davis then combined to keep NAU off the scoreboard.

Uiagalelei got a hand on the football. Davis returned it 85 yards for six points the other way.

The return is Arizona’s first such play since the 2002 season.

And it also completely flipped the game.

NAU went three-and-out and then four-and-out on its next two possessions. After the turnover on downs, Arizona covered 37 yards in four plays to score and go up 28-3.

NAU responded with another three-and-out, and then Arizona quarterback Jayden de Laura capped a three-play Arizona possession with a 53-yard run down the right sideline to push Arizona’s lead to 35-3 at the end of the third quarter.
