FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Alex Henderson ran for 132 yards and two touchdowns as Northern Arizona defeated winless Idaho State 40-12 Saturday.

Michael Herrick was 24 for 37 for 272 yards and one touchdown for the Lumberjacks (5-2, 4-1 Big Sky), who compiled 464 total yards, 33.5 more than their season average.

The Bengals (0-8, 0-5) have lost 20 straight on the road.

With NAU trailing 7-6, receiver Austin Shanks scored on a 24-yard reverse with just more than three minutes remaining in the opening quarter. Henderson then scored in the first minute of the second quarter, and the Lumberjacks built a 33-10 lead before halftime.

Herrick has now attempted 141 straight passes without throwing an interception.
