Idaho State 24, Northern Arizona 17

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) -- David Beverly's 70-yard interception return for a touchdown sparked Idaho State to a 24-17 come-from-behind win over Northern Arizona.

The Bengals (3-7, 2-5 Big Sky) trailed 17-0 in the second quarter, when Beverly picked off an off balance throw from quarterback Jason Murrietta and raced down the sidelines untouched for a score.

Northern Arizona (4-6, 3-4) led 17-7 at the half, allowing only 50 yards in total offense to Idaho State. But the Bengals turned that around, dominating the third quarter and scoring 17 unanswered points to take a 24-17 lead.

The Bengals had 151 yards of offense in the quarter.

The Lumberjacks twice had scoring chances in the fourth quarter but both drives ended with interceptions deep in ISU territory.

The final one came with 0:45 left when Ernie James intercepted a pass in the corner of the end zone.
