Mitakihara outgained on offense but still defeat Michigan State, 86-44

Sakura Bowl IV at Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium in Tokyo saw Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi get outgained on offense, 1053-602, but still defeated the Michigan State Spartans 86-44.
"Not very often do we get outgained on offense," said Kaname after the match. "But we were able to get the job done and win the game. Our boys played really tough football in the rain. They love these conditions because it's the type of conditions you see in the movies.
"We weren't that solid on special teams but we did enough on offense and defense. It was more so the defense that got the work done for us tonight."
Quarterback Parov Stelar II passed for 350 yards and four touchdowns while fullback Jacques Ladouceur ran for 131 yards and three more majors.
Defensively, the Magi earned 12 turnovers. Middle linebacker Roman Kollar led the way with 21 tackles. Mitakihara improve to 1-0 and continue their season next week on the road against the Illinois Fighting Illini.
