The UC Davis football team will host Northern Arizona on Sept. 7, giving the 2013 Aggies their first six-game home schedule and 12-game regular season since 2008.

The contest, which was announced Monday by UCD Athletic Director Terry Tumey, features two Big Sky teams, but will be played as a nonconference matchup to help the schools complete their schedules.

The game against the Lumberjacks will provide a home matchup between a season-opening roadtrip to South Dakota (Aug. 31) and a tough outing at Football Bowl Subdivision Nevada (Sept. 14). The other five Aggie home games are against Portland State (Sept. 21), Idaho State (Sept. 28), Montana (Oct. 12), Cal Poly (Nov. 2) and North Dakota (Nov. 16).

UCD and NAU met on the gridiron for the first time ever last fall, with the Lumberjacks posting a tough 21-7 Big Sky win in Flagstaff, Ariz. NAU finished 8-3 in 2012 and was 20th in the final Sports Network Top 25.

The Aggies ended their four-day, four-match road trip with a victory on Monday, beating the Portland State Vikings, 6-1, in a nonconference matchup at Club Green Meadow in Vancouver, Wash.

UCD (4-3) won three of the four matches, losing only a 7-0 contest to Portland on Sunday.

Against Portland State (2-4), Alec Haley, Parker Kelley, George Horowitz and Brett Bacharach each won singles and doubles matches, combining to earn five of the Aggies’ six points between them.

Kyle Miller was responsible for the other point, defeating Wil Cochrane 6-3, 6-0 in a singles match.

In doubles, Bacharach and Horowitz defeated Lukas Kortus/Brent Wheeler, 8-3, before Haley and Kelley clinched the point for UCD with an 8-5 victory.

UCD women’s tennis

Sophomore Layla Sanders posted a straight-set victory at No. 3 singles, while freshman Tiffany Pham scored wins in both of her singles and doubles contests, but Santa Clara managed a 4-3 win to spoil the Aggies’ home opener at the Marya Welch Tennis Center on Sunday.

Both the deciding doubles point and singles matches came down to the wire as UCD fell to 1-4.

After the Broncos won at No. 1 doubles, Pham and Ellie Edles scored an 8-4 win over Maddie McGeorge and Kelly Lamble at No. 2 to even things out. The deciding match — between Aggies Lauren Curry and Melissa Kobayakawa and SCU’s Stephanie Skaras and Delphine Rouvillois — went to a tiebreaker before the Bronco duo prevailed to earn the point.

In singles, UCD’s Megan Heneghan put up a strong battle with Katie Le, ranked 26th nationally in the preseason ITA poll. She fought back from a 6-2 loss in the first set to even the match with a 6-4 victory in the second. Neither player broke serve in the third until the final game, when Le hit a strong cross-court shot to Heneghan’s forehand. The Aggie junior made a lunging effort for a line shot but her ball sailed wide, ending her chances for an upset over the reigning West Coast Conference Player of the Year and leaving UCD one point short of winning the match.

UCD women’s water polo

Finishing a weekend full of competition against top 20 teams, the 12th-ranked Aggies lost to No. 1 Stanford (11-2) and No. 11 Hawaii (14-7) on Sunday, to finish sixth at the Stanford Invitational. After facing four highly ranked teams in the past three days, UCD is now 1-4 on the season.

Sophomore Paige Oreglia and freshman Hailey Wright, a Davis High graduate, each had one goal for the Aggies against the Cardinals.

In the nightcap, senior Jessica Dunn led UCD with a hat trick, while Erin Schlueter, Oreglia, Hannah Curran and Carmen Eggert each tallied once. Eggert’s goal, on a power play in the first quarter, tied the game at 3-3 before the Wahine scored five straight times to take control.
