The NAU Lumberjacks had trouble with their passing attack, throwing for just 34 yards in the first half and tossing two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, as Utah Tech beat the Jacks, 50-36 Saturday in the Skydome. The turning point in the game came in the second quarter after the Trail Blazers went up 17-7, they scored on an interception return for a touchdown and a fumble return for a touchdown in the span of about three minutes. One of a few positives for the Lumberjacks was the play of junior transfer running back Devon Starling. He had his best game as a Lumberjack, finishing with 111 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown. Freshman Adam Damante went 22-31 for 247 yards with his first career touchdown pass, and added another touchdown late in the game. He also had two interceptions and a fumble in the loss. NAU will begin its Big Sky Conference schedule at home next Saturday against the 12th-ranked Montana Grizzlies. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
