A number of scouts from Mitakihara University have been summoned to scout the Cincinnati Bearcats during their game against the Connecticut Huskies in American Athletic Conference play in Storrs, Conn. They are Mei Sagara, Miyabi Kannagi, Konoe Tsuruma, Rinka Kunitachi and Mana Tendou. All four are seniors and have volunteered to take part in this operation.

"Cincinnati's a quality opponent, probably one that Mitakihara will have a tough time against," Sagara said. "They have solid speed and have the type of football IQ needed to win championships. And they also tackle hard."

"I enjoy the opportunity to do some scouting against a worthy opponent of Cincinnati's caliber," Kannagi said. "Anything to add to our service hours. The fact that this is all-expenses paid makes it even more worth it."

"It's nice to check out the types of things the football team does because it's not just about playing and coaching," Tsuruma said. "There's also the important part of knowing who you're facing and preparing for them. Preparation, that's the word. This is part of preparing for our eventual opponent."

"There is a chance that this may not be our opponent at all because we have a conference championship game next week," said Kunitachi. "We could be going to a minor bowl game instead. So this may all be in vain. But the important thing is experiencing the process firsthand."

"I think it's going to be a great game," added Tendou. "Connecticut is also a tough team to play against and no one should sell the Huskies short. Hopefully we leave our visit impressed with what could be our eventual bowl game opponent, unless South Carolina throws a wrench in the whole thing next week."
