Magia Day 2053: It's something to remember

For Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi football team, Magia Day 2053 on Nov. 29, 2053 isn't the final home game for the seniors, although it technically is. That's because if they defeat the UNLV Rebels this weekend, they get one more glorified home game against the champion of the Mountain Division in the Mountain West Conference Championship game.

"We don't think of it as a farewell just yet; maybe for the seniors on the other sports teams but not for us," said quarterback Haruyuki Arita, the first gunslinger to pass for over 20,000 career passing yards and 300 career passing touchdowns. "It will only be our final home game if we lose.

"We're not thinking too much about that happening. This is a team that will not let its fans down. We want to finish the regular season off in grand fashion and put on a show for everybody. In fact, we're more concerned about Miami and Texas relegating us to the Rose Bowl."

"I don't want us to finish third in the final BCS polls like what happened a few years ago," said wide receiver Takumu Mayuzumi. "We won the Rose Bowl, but we would like to end our careers winning another National Championship. The Mountain West isn't as strong as the ACC and the Big XII in terms of talent, but we have good teams out here too, and we happen to be one of them.

"We want to take care of this game and then the conference championship game and hope that either Miami or Texas fall by the end of this month. I want us to face Notre Dame in the BCS Championship Game. Hey, I can dream, can't I?"

"I've enjoyed my time here," said middle linebacker Jeff Nakazawa. "It's been a blast playing with some solid players from across the continent. And I love this university. I've had a great journey and I'm about to finish up. So I want to get this over with and finish in style with the rest of my teammates. We're almost there."

Tickets for the game are sold out. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. PT/11 p.m. ET and will be televised by City, TVA Sports, ESPN 2, the Mtn., and BBC Five Live and NHK online.
