FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Zach Bauman ran for 151 yards and a touchdown to power Northern Arizona to 22-16 win over South Dakota on Saturday night.
Bauman, who became the school's all-time leading rusher last week in a win over UC Davis, ran for a 3-yard score just before halftime to give the Lumberjacks (2-1) a 13-0 lead.
The Lumberjacks' defense was dominant in the first half, holding South Dakota (1-2) to just 9 yards of total offense in the first half. Anders Battle returned an interception 49 yards to open the scoring in the first quarter.
South Dakota's offense finally got loose in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Josh Vander Maten rushed for one touchdown and threw for another as the Coyotes cut the lead to 22-16 with 2:54 left.
After failing to recover the onside kick, Bauman was able to pick up two first downs, icing the game for Northern Arizona.
