For the first three weeks of the 2050 college football season, it had been about the Mitakihara Magi quarterback-wide receiver combo of Haruyuki Arita and Takumu Mayuzumi. With the major ranked opposition of the way and the focus shifting to conference play, Magi head coach Tatsuya Kaname elected to focus on the ground game.

Halfback Tommy Washington, a native of Saskatoon, Sask. who has ambitions of being a Roughrider, ran for 379 yards and scored seven touchdowns as the Magi raced past the Boise State Broncos, 125-31, at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara Town, B.C.

"Yeah, we wanted to give Tommy some reps so that he could boost his stats and he can make a case to be on a CFL roster," said Coach Kaname after the game. "I think he's going to be a great tailback in the CFL, but he needs to also shine as a receiver because of the difference rules. He's played Canadian football all his life, though, so being drafted in the CFL will be a sort of homecoming for him."

As for Arita, he passed for 215 yards while rushing for 260 yards and four touchdowns. Halfback Rod Wade ran for 143 yards and three majors, and both halfback Marques Murray and fullback Zach Howe also earned a score on the ground. Mayuzumi led the receivers with three catches with 34 yards and also led in blocking with 17 pancakes.

Middle linebacker Jeff Nakazawa led the defense with 13 tackles and an interception, while right outside linebacker Robert Gaither added 11 tackles and a sack. Three other players on defense had two sacks each.

Mitakihara will take next week off before heading into the meat and potatoes of the schedule, starting on Oct. 6 on the road against Colorado State.
