His touchdown passes found three different receivers: Aaron Thomas, Kris Lott and Cordell Roberson.
The score was tied at 10 at halftime, and at 17 at the end of the third quarter.
The Demons (4-7, 2-5, Southland) were unable to score in the fourth.
But the Lumberjacks had more success.
Gus Johnson made an 8-yard touchdown run.
