QUarterback Dylan Maxwell passed for 68 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 129 yards and another score as Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi ran it up on the Fresno State Bulldogs, 128-21, at Bulldog Stadium in Fresno, Calif. Halback Michael Wilkerson was on fire, rushing for 195 yards and four touchdowns, while halfback Beau Day ran for 108 yards and three more scores.

Tight end Deon Tanner caught four passes for 41 yards and three touchdowns to lead the receivers, while wide receivers Matt Hopkins and Jon James each had 11 pancake blocks. Middle linebacker Jeff Nakazawa led the defense with 16 tackle, but it was right outside linebacker Thomas Pittman who had a big day on defense, with 11 tackles, two sacks and a safety.

"D.W. took a knock in this match and we're going to take a look at him ahead of our season-ending home stand," said Coach Kaname after the game. "We're hoping its nothing serious, but if it is, its going to really push our quarterback depth. Hinoi is one of our young aces, and for him to be sidelined would be a shot in the foot for us as a team."

Mitakihara improve to 8-0 and return home next week to face the San Diego State Aztecs.
