It was wet. It was windy. It was miserable...for Nevada, that is. Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi returned to the old spread option attack and were successful in implementing the system in their 115-13 victory over the Nevada Wolf Pack at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara Town, B.C. Quarterback Haruyuki Arita passed for 230 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 340 yards and seven more scores.

"Pigs love rain, and this week, our Pig relished the conditions," said Coach Kanane. "Haru couldn't go deep very well passing the ball so I told him to use more of the option plays this week. We got good contributions from Arita and [halfback] Fred [Jackson] and also saw the defense deliver, as per usual. Solid effort.

"Hopefully the conditions are a bit drier when we head south to Albuquerque against the Lobos."

Jackson ran for 248 yards and four touchdowns while halfback Marques Murray ran for 180 yards and two more scores. Fullback John Nelson and halfback Chauncey Wilson added another touchdown. Tight end Travis Murphy led the receivers with five receptions for 65 yards. Wideout Takumu Mayuzumi was a blocking machine, leading the blockers with 30 pancakes.

Middle linebacker Jeff Nakazawa is on a quest to win the Chuck Bednarik Award after amassing 21 tackles. However, he will be challenged by a number of fellow teammates, including cornerback Tony Hubbard, who is most likely to earn Defensive Player of the Week honors after recording 10 tackles and five interceptions.

Madoka improve to 7-0 and will hit the road to face the New Mexico Lobos next week.
