Wet conditions at Kyle Field in College Station, Tex. made things pretty tricky and ugly for Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi against the Texas A&M Aggies. However, through a balance of run and pass, the run-and-shoot was effective as Madoka rolled past A&M, 62-6, on Saturday.

Quarterback Justin Powers, the son of former Mitakihara great Austin Powers, passed for 526 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 42 yards and a score. However, halfback Tukul Abdul Rahman was the player of the games for his 266 rushing yards and four touchdowns, along with six catches for 72 yards.

Wide receiver Jason Bower caught 10 passes for 157 yards and a touchdown, wideout Marques Singleton caught eight passes for 75 yards and a score and wideout David Culver Page caught six passes for 109 yards and a major. Wide receiver Tony Graham Bell led in blocking with 27 pancakes while Bower added 23. Cornerback Josh Joyce led the Magi in tackling with 10 tackles, cornerback Darren Kujou had three interceptions and left end Jermaine Asante added four sacks.

"We've had an excellent run with out non-conference games and now we get some time to rest before we being the home slate of matches, as well as the conference schedule," Coach Kaname said after the game. "We have some of the finest senior leadership and they are looking forward to the break as much as the coaches are. So we'll have some time to examine Air Force and get ready for them."

Mitakihara improve to 3-0 on the year and are back in action on Sept. 27 against the Air Force Falcons. In past years, this would have been their Homecoming Game, but this time, with a home game on Week 6, Homecoming has been pushed back to Oct. 4, one day following the 49th anniversary of the founding of the University.
