Mitakihara pull away in second half, beat Air Force 115-62

The first quarter between Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi and the Air Force Falcons was a back-and-forth affair, but in the second quarter and second half, the Magi pulled away and won the rematch of the 2029 BCS National Championship Game 115-62 at Falcon Stadium in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Quarterback Siri Illuminati passes for 288 yards and a couple of touchdowns while rushing for 69 yards and three more scores. Halfback Andy Fields continued his hotstreak, rushing for 142 yards and four majors. Tight end Brandon Jackson had a breakout game, catching five passes for 100 yards and a touchdown.
However, among the wide receivers, there was no one that shined brighter that Kunihiko Hatanaka. The grandson of former Ottawa Rough Rider Bill Hatanaka, Kunihiko caught two passes for 48 yards and a score, returned three kickoffs for 217 yards and two majors, and returned four punts for 103 yards and a touchdown.
Middle linebacker Lemon Eyre led the staunch Mitakihara defense with 15 tackles and a sack. Defensive tackle Zulu Mazurek led the Madoka pass rush with three sacks.
The Magi improve to 2-0 with the victory and continue their campaign next week against the Illinois Fighting Illini in Champagne, Illinois.
