Shear awesomeness in this one, as this article talks about NAU’s Science and Engineering Day (Sept. 23rd).  This coincides with the Annual Flagstaff Festival of Science (Sept 22nd – Oct. 1st).

Football:

2 days until NAU kicks off the 2017 season at UofA!  Go Jacks!!!

Just in case you are thinking that there’s no way the Jacks can take down the Cats, I found the above article, which, although it doesn’t involve either team, and NMSU is (technically) a FBS football program, shows that upsets do happen. 
The second article is a little closer to home.  It talks about NAU’s upset of UNLV (FBS football team) in 2012.
Huge upsets can happen.  Go Jacks!!!
Women’s Soccer:

The Lady Jacks took down Canyon University 1-0, and will face the Detroit Titans tomorrow, and Nevada on Sunday.  Go Jacks!!!
Volleyball:
Volleyball started the season (and the Miami Best Western Sycamore Inn Invitational) off strong with a victory (3-2) over Southern Illinois, but then dropped 2 straight to Western Kentucky (0-3) and Miami, Oh (1-3). Tomorrow, they will begin the Hampton Inn Jackrabbit Invitational in Brookings, SD against Valparaiso (Fri), CSU Bakersfield (Sat) and South Dakota St (Sat).  Go Jacks!!!!

Cross Country:
2 days until the Defending NCAA Champions begin their title defense at the George Kyte Classic in Flagstaff.  Go Jacks!!!
