Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi overcame a slow start to crack the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the second quarter and break the match wide open for a 76-17 rout at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind. With starting quarterback Ricky Cojuangco taken out of the game due to injury, backup Rajiv Singh earned 217 yards of total offense to go with three touchdowns.

Halfback Dan Roxas ran for 142 yards and a score, Cojuangco ran for 179 yards and a major, and halfback Billy Shaw ran for 57 yards and three touchdowns. Wide receiver Johnny Muntari led the team in blocking with 19 pancakes while freshman Zac Chabangu added 13 pancakes.

Defensively, cornerback Drew Clottey was stellar with a team-high 15 tackles. Cornerback Greg Essien added 14 tackles and an interceptions returned for a touchdown and fellow cornerback Josh Ravensdale also returned a pick for six. Right outside linebacker Jon Murray led the defense in sacks with three.

"Good start to the season but next week, we face an Alabama team that is hoping to spring an upset on us when we least expect it," Coach Kaname said. "Our boys will be ready for the challenge, though, but overconfidence won't be part of our game plan next week."

Madoka improve to 1-0 on the season and continue their road trip next week against the Alabama Crimson Tide.
