FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Zach Bauman found his extra gear in the second half, leading Northern Arizona to a 39-30 victory over Idaho State Saturday night.

Bauman, who finished with a career-best 266 rushing yards on 28 carries, carried five times on a six-play, 85-yard scoring drive in the third quarter to give the Lumberjacks (5-2, 3-1 Big Sky Conference) their first lead, 19-14.

Northern Arizona was cruising home, ahead 39-14 in the final quarter, when the Bengals (3-4, 1-3) charged back, scoring two late touchdowns and converting the two point try both times. Justin Arias, who totaled 390 passing yards, threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Broc Malcom to make it 39-22. Idaho State recovered the ensuing onside kick and Arias quickly struck on a 20-yard scoring pass to Cameron Richmond, making it 39-30. The Lumberjacks recovered the onside kick and held on for the win.
