Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi are scheduled to wrap up another successful season on Tuesday, Jan. 6 against the Brigham Young Cougars in the 2060 BCS National Championship Game at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans, La. Meanwhile, back at Mitakihara University in Mitakihara Town, B.C., a major announcement was made regarding the Magi football team today.

"It is my pleasure to announce that in the 2061 college football season, the Mitakihara Magi will return to playing football as a Division I FBS Independent," athletic director Mami Tomoe said at a press conference at Hakurei Centre. "The 2060 season will be our last season playing football as an auxiliary member of the Mountain West Conference. Our spot will be replaced by Boise State, with Brigham Young joining the Mountain Division of the Mountain West that year.

"It's been our desire, our determination and need, to play the best teams in college football. As a member of the Mountain West, we were unable to satisfy that need of playing with the best teams in the country. Although this will hurt our chances of qualifying for the Rose Bowl, the game is of little significance to us in the long run.

"There is only one postseason game that matters to us, and it's the National Championship. It is our duty, our right, to win the games we need to win to qualify for college football's grandest stage. We are not going to be able to book our place by playing teams that are nowhere close to bowl-ready. We have to play the best because we are the home of the Best College Football Team In All of College Football.

"This is a move that the students, the faculty, the administration, and most importantly, the fans and boosters have been waiting days, months, even years to hear. So bear with us playing in the Mountain West for one more season. We will look to finish our time in the Mountain West with a bang."

After briefly fielding questions, Ms. Tomoe, sports information director Kyouko Sakura and their team of associates took a ferry to head to Vancouver International Airport to make a flight for New Orleans ahead of the 2060 BCS National Championship. The Magi are a comfortable 40-point favorite heading in. Halfback Tukul Abdul Rahman is picked as an even money favorite to score the first touchdown, according to Paddy Power, with wide receiver Marques Singleton coming in at a close 3-1 second choice.
