And so, the dynasty continues. Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi won the 2055 BCS National Championship Game in Glendale, Ariz. after clobbering the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 248-52. Quarterback Dylan Maxwell passed for 922 yards and 13 touchdowns while rushing for 113 yards and two more scores. A balanced ground attack, a core of talented receivers, clutch defending and a deadly special teams were all Madoka needed on the night.

Halfback Michael Wilkerson ran for 189 yards and two touchdowns, halfback Beau Day ran for 249 yards and four more scores and both fullbacks Hearst Helmsley and Dominique Wright had a major each. Wide receiver Jeff Scott caught seven passes for 310 yards and four touchdowns, wideout Matt Lewis caught six passes for 313 yards and four more scores and wideout Jon James caught four passes for 216 yards and another four majors.

Scott and wide receiver Ethan Brink led in blocking with 18 pancakes, while Lewis added 11. Free safety Julian Bonds led the defense in tackling with 12 tackles and both cornerback Nathan Sims and left end Ryan Hodge added four sacks each. However, the star on defense was cornerback Gir Todafunk. 

Clearly resolved and playing with a massive chip on his shoulder after finishing second in the Heisman voting to halfback DeMarcus Washington, Todafunk regustered six tackles and 11 interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns incliding a 79-yarder. Todafunk also returned a kickoff 85 yards for a major.

A couple other players did their part on special teams. Halfback Chaz Thomas returned five kickoffs for 204 yards and a touchdown while returning three punts for 155 yards and two more scores. Finally, left end Derek McGill also got into the scoring feast, returning a kickoff 60 yards for a touchdown.

"My performance goes out as a warning to the media members who did not put me on their first-place ballot," Todafunk said after the game, the ice water still flowing in his veins despite it all. "Ignore me, and I will make you pay. I will make sure to work even harder and grab even more interceptions next year. I'm going to also ask Coach Kaname if I could return kickoffs and punts next season. In 2055, the Heisman WILL be mine."

Mitakihara finish the season 14-0.
