FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Cory Young and Joe Logan each ran for two touchdowns and Northern Arizona took over the top spot in the Big Sky Conference with a 45-31 win over UC Davis Saturday night.

The Lumberjacks (5-2, 4-0 Big Sky) are the only team without a conference loss following Eastern Washington’s 46-28 loss at Southern Utah.

NAU took control in the second quarter with four unanswered touchdowns. Young scored on runs of 43 and 4 yards for a 14-7 lead and Case Cookus added touchdown passes to Elijah Marks and Hunter Burton.

Logan scored from a yard out to push the NAU lead to 35-7 early in the second half before the Aggies got a 100-yard kick-off return for a touchdown by Namane Modise to kickstart a 17-point third quarter comeback to cut their deficit to 11, 35-24.

Logan scored from the 2 to make it 45-24 in the fourth quarter.
