Mitakihara Magi quarterback Haruyuki Arita suffered a strained back on the road against Air Force and would be sidelined for another seven weeks ahead of the match between Tatsuya Kaname's Magi and the Colorado State Rams. The earliest he would be available would be against UNLV and even so, his status would still be up in the air.

Thus, one thing was for certain: the Heisman Trophy would go to a different player. One of the possible candidates to win the prize for the Magi is halfback D.W. Hinoi. In an unusual gamble, the athlete known as Ike Ike was tabbed as the starting quarterback for the next seven weeks, since he had a competent throwing arm.

Hinoi passed for 390 yards and seven touchdowns to lead the Magi to a 171-45 battering of the Rams at Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins, Colo. Coach Kaname had no regrets in starting a player whose field awareness is a major liability.

"We think D.W.'s athleticism and versatility will allow him to run our option well," said Coach Kaname. "Dylan's going to be our backup for the time being because we want to give our freshman star a chance to prove himself. He did admirably but he needs to learn how to scramble if he cannot find anyone open."

Halfback Beau Day ran for 65 yards and three touchdowns while halfback Michael Wilkerson added 234 yards ando another score. Wide receiver Jon James had five catches for 132 yards and thee touchdowns while Takumu Mayuzumi added four receptions for 141 yards and three more scores.

Right outside linebacker Thomas "The English Muffin" Pittman led the defense with four sacks and an interception. Safety Ross Leak led in tackles with 11, while defensive end Brian Brown added four more sacks.

Madoka improve to 5-0 and are back on it next week against the Nevada Wolf Pack.
