There will be no national championship for Mitakihara University, but there will be another Rose Bowl title.

Halfback Dan Roxas ran for 226 yards and four touchdowns as Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi rushed past the UCLA Bruins, 94-13. This came hours after university vice-chancellor Sayaka Miki announced her retirement from the university effective the end of the spring term, at one hour to midnight on New Year's Eve.

"We wanted to win this for Ms. Sayaka," said Roxas, who was carried off the field, along with Cojuangco. "Ms. Sayaka's done so much for the university that we needed to show how much we appreciate everything that she did. We didn't win her the last crystal football, but we did win a nice Leishman Trophy for the Hall of Fame. This was a solid season by everyone, and I'm just glad to be part of it."

Halfback Rajiv Singh ran for 187 yards and three touchdowns, quarterback Ricky Cojuangco ran for 205 yards and three scores, fullback Shabba Tshabalala ran for 105 yards and a touchdown, wide receiver Tony Graham Bell led the blockers with 31 pancakes, middle linebacker Jules Macklemore led the defense with 25 tackles and a sack, left outside linebacker Dralion CLowney had four sacks and strong safety Nobuyuki Oomiya added two interceptions.

Oomiya believed that the offseason was going to be one with debating.

"I think there will be people who feel that we deserved to be in Miami to play for the national championship," Oomiya said to the media after the game. "Some will say that we were robbed, others will say we deserved it after a soft schedule. We're just going to say that we finished perfect and if Florida and Army want to schedule us next year, we have them in their crosshairs.

"Actually, I think the coaches said they will schedule those two teams next season, so I guess we'll have to see what the future holds."

Mitakihara finish the season 14-0.
