Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi destroyed the Alabama Crimson Tide 151-42 at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara, B.C. on Saturday but the Ol' Ball Coach received some terrible news from team doctor Rika Shiguma. Quarterback Josh Carrington, who replaced started Invalid Name after he was taken out due to a concussion, is out for the remainder of the season due to a broken elbow.

"Ugh, this is the type of news that makes me sick personally," said Coach Kaname after the game. "One thing is for sure: we are going to get Josh's services next season. It's never a good feeling to go down for the season due to injury from a player's perspective. But on the flip side, this allows him to focus on his academic concerns. He's a good student and we believe he will graduate on time."

As a result, Rashaun Manning will be moved up to backup and Jeff Gross will be bumped up to third-string quarterback. It is unknown whether or not Gross will remain the kickoff specialist, but he was the kickoff specialist this game.

Quarterback Invalid Name passes for 322 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 172 yards and two more majors. Halfback Tyrone Gay ran for 101 yards and three scores, fullback Kohei Miyahara rushed for 130 yards and three touchdowns and halfback AKira Himenokouji ran for 171 yards and two majors. Also with a touchdown on the ground were wide receiver Makoto Yasaka, halfback George Jackson and tight end Ryuta Kasugano.

Wide receiver Kunihiko Yoichi caught seven passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns. Right guard Gen Harada and wide receiver Stephen Fuller led the blockers with 29 pancakes. Middle linebacker Jackie Bezzine led the defense with 18 tackles and an pick. Defensive tackle Confucius Muhammad had two sacks. Kicker Ronnie Hinchcliffe was 6-for-6 on field goals, including a 50-yarder, while converting all 19 extra points.

Madoka improve to 3-0 and get the week off before opening conference play against Utah State.
