For one quarter, it seemed like a historc upset of upsets was imminent. Then Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi woke up in the second quarter and outscored the San Diego State Aztecs in that stanza, 38-3. Despite a spirited defensive performance from the Aztecs that neutralized an experimental run-and-shoot attack, Madoka survived an offensive slugfest to take down San Diego State, 94-16, on Saturday at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Calif.

Despite throwing a couple of interceptions, quarterback Dean Amakusa passed for 510 yards and five touchdowns while rushing for 137 yards and two more scores. Halfback Tukul Abdul Rahman ran for 169 yards and three majors, wide receiver Marques Singleton caught 14 passes for 173 yards and a touchdown and wideout Jason Bower caught five passes for 162 yards and a major.

Wide receiver Tony Graham Bell, who also caught a caught a touchdown pass, led the blockers with 24 pancakes while Bower had 23 and Singleton had 11. Middle linebacker Jules Macklemore led the tackles on defense with 13 but it was left end Jermaine Asanta that came up big, with six sacks on the day.

Mitakihara improve to 9-0 and hit the road next week to take on the Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors.
