This paper is concerned with the existence of multiple unbounded solutions for a Sturm-Liouville boundary value problem on the half-line. By assuming the existence of two pairs of unbounded upper and lower solutions, the existence of at least three solutions is obtained using the degree theories. Nagumo condition plays an important role in the nonlinear term involved in the first-order derivative. It is an interesting point that the method of unbounded upper and lower solutions is extended to obtain conditions for the existence of multiple solutions.
