FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Cary Grosscart had 262 yards passing and two touchdowns, Zach Bauman ran for 92 yards and a score, and Northern Arizona kept its momentum Saturday, beating Portland State 24-10 for its first four-game winning streak since the 2009 season.

Bauman opened the scoring for the Lumberjacks (4-1, 2-0 Big Sky) with a 7-yard run in the first quarter, capping a 75-yard drive. Earlier on the drive, Bauman had become the fourth NAU running back to reach 3,000 yards rushing for his career.

Later in the first quarter, Grosscart, who was 24 of 34, found Beau Gardner for a 1-yard score. He then hit Drew Emanuel from 30 yards out midway through the third. Grosscart completed passes to 11 different receivers.

Kieran McDonagh ran for the Vikings' (1-4, 0-2) only touchdown but threw for just 154 yards and was intercepted twice. Portland State's Nevin Lewis led all receivers with 83 yards.
