Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi wrapped up a solid September with a 196-49 victory over the Boise State Broncos at Bronco Stadium in Boise, Idaho. At the center of the Hikaru Furu Set was quarterback Haruyuki Arita. The Pig passed for 567 yards and nine touchdowns while rushing for 271 yards and four more scores. Arita's cannon of an arm, combined with speed and girth, puts him at the front of the Heisman Trophy race.

Halfback Marques Murray ran for 337 yards and five touchdowns, halfback Chauncey Wilson ran for 71 yards and three more scores and halfback Fred Jackson rushed for 95 yards and three more majors. Wide receiver Takumu Mayuzumi led the receivers with 315 receving yards and four touchdowns. Four other players, including Jackson, also received a pass for a score each.

One of those other players was wideout Reggie McFadden. He and Mayu each had 13 pancakes each to lead the blocking for the Magi. Defensively, senior middle linebacker Luis "Senor" Thomas had 15 tackles, right end Brian Brown had four sacks, cornerbacks James Reyes and SHedrick Johnson had three interceptions each, and strong safety Vince Wolfer had four picks.

"I had mixed feelings about Haru's passing today," said Coach Kaname after the game. "He can throw the ball deep, but he has to be smart, and put some zip in those throws. It's an automatic six when those passes connect with speed and they aren't hanging in the air. If they hang in the air, Boise's got some good secondary people that can home in on those passes.

"Otherwise, after throwing it deep early, it allowed us to concentrate on our ground attack. Our lineman have been working real hard to push and provide holes for Marques, Fred and Chauncey to bust throw. The O-line did a really good job with the run support today."

Madoka improve to 5-0 and return to action next week at home against Colorado State.
