Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi will look to defend their Mountain West Conference Championship after defeating the UNLV Rebels, 215-63, at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Quarterback Dylan Maxwell passed for 481 yards and seven touchdowns and rushed for 114 yards and three more scores in the round.

Halfback Michael Wilkerson ran for 250 yards and a touchdown, backup quarterback Sam Tremblay ran for 137 yards and two scores, halfback Beau Day ran for 135 yards and three majors and halfback DeMarcus Washington also ren for three more touchdowns. Wide receiver Matt Lewis led the receivers with six catches for 303 yards and five touchdowns, while wideout Jeff Scott added three catches for 168 yards and thre majors.

Scott also led the blockers with 15 pancakes, while wideout Ethan Brink added 14 pancakes. Middle linebacker Jason Evans led the defence with 10 tackles and both left end Derek McGill and defensive tackle Ryan Bowers had three sacks apiece, but it was the heroics of cornerback Gir Todafunk that got everyone in Sin City talking.

Todafunk had three tackles and eight interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns in a first quarter that saw Madoka hang 150 on the Rebels. On specuial teams, fullback Hearst Helmsley returned a kickoff 84 yards for a touchdown and halfback Chaz Thomas returned a punt 46 yards for a score.

"Very good performance overall from the boys, they were all business today," said Coach Kaname, whose Magi clinched the Mountain West Conference West Division. "We're two games away from calling this season a wrap, so we look to finish the job late. Our morale is good and what can I say about Gir? He's my man of the match. Nothing to take away from Dylan, but Gir was wonderful, like his moniker says."

Mitakihara improve to 12-0 and will host the 2054 Mountain West Conference Championship Game in two weeks' time.
