Mitakihara Magi quarterback Haruyuki Akita decided to make the Magi's game against the New Mexico Lobos his personal toy. Arita passed for 687 yards and nine touchdowns while rushing for 640 yards and 13 more scores as a balanced, dominating attack combined with a 136-point first quarter euthanized the Lobos, 255-10 at University Stadium in Albuquerque, N.M.

The unofficial score was 276-10, but the NCAA's 255-point rule was in effect. But it wasn't just Arita that did his part. It was the others. Halfback Fred Jackson ran for 158 yards and five touchdowns, halfback Marques Murray ran for 99 yards and two majors, halfback Chauncey WIlson rushed for two short touchdowns and wide receiver Timothy Fernando added a 44-yard jet sweep run for six.

Wide receiver Takumu Mayuzumi has his eyes set on defending his Biletnikoff Award. Mayuzumi caught 10 passes for 350 yards and five touchdowns. Wideout Trey Lester added three catches for 140 yards and two scores. Also with a touchdown catch were tight end Travis Murphy and wideout Reggie McFadden. Lester led the blockers with 28 pancakes, while Mayu added 22 pancakes.

Middle linebacker Jeff Nakazawa led the defense with 14 tackles and two sacks. Cornerback Charles Greene had two interceptions returned for touchdowns, strong safety Vince Wolfe also had a pick six and three players on defense had three sacks.

On special teams, kicker Chris Lawson, made a season-long 59-yard field goal in the first quarter, while halfback DeMarcus Washington returned a punt 86 yards for a score in the fourth. The punt return is an NCAA record. Murphy also returned a kickoff 78 yards for six.

"We had a great day moving the football and making plays, both on offense and defense," Coach Kaname said after the game. "I wanted Haru to have fun out there, and he did. Everyone on first team did their job, and they will be rewarded next week by having the day off. I plan to activate the second string against Fresno and give them some time to show what they can do."

Mitakihara improve to 8-0 and will host the Fresno State Bulldogs next week.
