It was a no-nonsense type of result, with the only hiccup being the third missed convert of the season for Mitakihara Magi kicker Yoto Inokuma. Tatsuya Kaname's Magi shut out Sadao Mao's UNLV Rebels, 82-0 on a snowy November night at Mitakihara Stadium in Mitakihara Town, B.C., to win the West Division of the Mountain West Conference and host, once again, the Mountain West Championship Game in two weeks time.

Quarterback Dean Amakusa passed for 201 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 48 yards and two more scores. Halfback Tony Kalmar ran for 140 yards and a touchdown, offensive captain/halfback Chaz Thomas ran for 102 yards and a score, fullback Brian Brooks rushed for 96 yards and two majors and wide receiver Patrick Cox caught five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown.

Senior right guard Melvin Pitts led the blockers with 16 pancakes, while freshman left tackle Charles Mitchell had 13 pancakes and freshman right tackle D.J. Leach added 10. Senior defensive tackle Micah Joseph led the pass rush with 11 tackles, three sacks and a safety while freshman left end Jermaine Asante added eight tackles and three sacks.

"The players can smell a possible date with Notre Dame in January, but they need to focus on winning the conference first," Coach Kaname said after the game. "We're going to up our practice routine next week and fire ourselves up for the real last home of the season against the best team in the Mountain Division. We are excited to play hosts, and the Mountain West Conference loves us a lot, so we feed off of the love. We can't wait to get going again."

Mitakihara improve to 12-0 on the year.
