Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi won their 43rd National Championship, defeating the Minnesota Golden Gophers 220-21 in the 2056 BCS National Championship Game at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Quarterback D.W. Hinoi passe for 658 yards and nine touchdowns while rushing for 101 yards and another score. Cornerback Gir Todafunk was named Player of the Game for his eight tackles and 10 interceptions, three which were returned for touchdowns.

Halfback Chaz Thomas ran for 185 yards and four touchdowns, backup quarterback Dylan Maxwell ran for 135 yards and four more majors, halfback Beauy Day ran for 156 yards and four scores and halfback Michael Wilkerson scored a pair of short touchdown runs. Wide receiver Matt Lewis finished his illustrious career at Madoka with six catches for 303 yards and four scores, while wideout Jeff Scott had four catches for 155 yards and a major.

Wide receiver Patrick Cox led in blocking with 25 while senior left tackle Jack Graves concluded his career on the Mitakihara offensive line with eight pancakes. There were other contibutors on defense besides Todafunk. Strong safety Nick Malceski had four tackles, two of which were returned for touchdowns. Middle linebacker Todd Sparks also had eight tackles to go with a sack. And four different players on defense had three sacks each.

"This was a great year for the team, and we dedicated this season to my sister, who had just retired from being the university chancellor," Coach Kaname said. "Now she can focus on being a housewife, a grandmother and a writer. My sister and I are preparing a book of memoirs from over five decades of being together. She's not only a great wife but also she's my sister, and I treasure her a lot like I do my team. I love everyone that supports what we do. What a year."

"It's a shame that this was my last year being with the team, but I finished it off in style," a teary-eyed Hinoi said. "This was an amazing ride, and it's like a dream that I will never awaken from. This is for you, Dr. Madoka Kaname! We love you and we wish you well. We did it!"

A major question now heading into the offseason is whether or not Todafunk will elect to stay for his senior season or declare early for the draft.

"I don't want to think too much about the draft and about the decision as to whether I should leave early or not," Todafunk said after the game. "I want to think about it for a little bit and talk with my family about turning pro. I'm open to the idea of returning next year, though."

Mitakihara end their season with another 14-0 record.
