It was a sloppily-played game at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara, B.C. with turnovers left and right, a few that left Mitakihara Magi football head coach Tatsuya Kaname visibly displeased. In the end, the crowd of 20,000 knew how this was going to end. The Magi routed the Arkansas State Red Wolves 89-31 on Magia Day 2037 to seal their place in the Bowl Championship Series National Championship Game in Pasadena, Calif.

Quarterback Leeroy Jenkins had one of his worst outings in a Magi uniform, passing for 201 yards and two interceptions while rushing for just 186 yards and a touchdown. Fullback Robin Izumi had a much better performance, rushing for 122 yards and three touchdowns. Halfback Tsuji Ikari ran for 138 yards and two majors, while halfback Bryan Flowers rushed for 82 yards and two scores.

Wide receiver Kenji Sugisaki caught three passes for 70 yards to lead the stagnant receiving game. Fellow wideout Andrew Blount and left guard Joseph Davis led the pass blockers with 28 pancakes. Right guard Adrian Brant added 25 pancakes but also gave up three sacks.

Middle linebacker Kazero Otonashi was an enforce on defense, making 19 tackles, three sacks, three interceptions, a pass deflection, two forced fumbles, a recovered fumble, and a couple of defensive touchdowns. With this performance, Otonashi has potentially sewn up the Chuck Bednarik Award. Defensive tackle Ma Ling Lee added two sacks. Also making a pick were cornerbacks Joe Massey and Remy Nishijou.

"Our seniors wanted to finish strong and they did," said Coach Kaname after the game. "We now get ready for the home stretch. We plan to intensify our practice sessions. The boys will be fired up for the big game in January."

Mitakihara improve to 12-0 for the season.
