It's another win for Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi football team as they posted their most decisive victory of the season, 244-21 over the New Mexico Lobos at University Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Quarterback Dean Amakusa passed for 529 yards and 10 touchdowns while rushing for 167 yards and two more majors. But it wasn't just DeanAma that went rampant on the Lobos.

Halfback Chaz Thomas ran for 227 yards and five touchdowns, halfback Tony Kalmar ran for 354 yards and four majors, backup quarterback Justin Powers ran for 11 yards and three scores, halfback Joe Wilson ran for 150 yards and two touchdowns, fullback Mark Moore ran for 93 yards and two majors and wide receiver Patrick Cox caught 10 passes for 430 yards and eight more scores.

In addition to all his catches, Cox led the blockers with 25 pancakes. On defense, middle linebacker Bobby Bray led the tackles with 10 tackles, but it was the army of freshman cornerbacks that made a bigger statement. Cornerbacks Richie Love and James Reese had five sacks each and the swingman of the cornerbacks, Darren Kujou, had five interceptions. Kujou, the brother-in-law of former Magi linebacker Jeff Nakazawa, also broke the NCAA record for longest punt return with a 92-yard return for a touchdown.

"We've got a good thing going for us," Coach Kaname said after the game. "We are now 8-0 and will look to make an even bigger push next week against our designated rivals, Fresno State. The men are focused, determined and ready to move on to the next challenge."

Mitakihara improve to 8-0 on the year.
