Northern Arizona finished the 2013 season with a record of 9-3, also winning 7 of the 8 games that they played within the Big Sky conference of the FCS subdivision.

Northern Arizona is looking to improve on their already impressive last season, continuing to assert themselves as a dominant team in the Big Sky conference and improve their standing in the FCS as they pursue a championship. If the lumberjacks take on, and beat the Aztecs, that will be a solid beginning to the 2014 campaign as they hope to continue pursuing greatness within the FCS.

The Aztecs are favored to win this game, but it should be a pretty competitive game nonetheless. Northern Arizona would love to pull off the upset, but the Aztecs will overcome th Lumberjacks, winning 24-17.
