There is joy in Mitakihara Town, British Columbia once again. Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi defeated the Nebraska Cornhuskers, coached by former Magi great Leeroy Jenkins, to the tune of 167-28 in the 2063 BCS National Championship Game at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. A strong balance of pass and run, combined with a resolute wearing down of Nebraska in the first quarter, made this result the most decisive of all the games the Magi have played this year.

"It feels good to be on top again," said quarterback Ricky Cojuangco, who passed for 275 yards and five touchdowns while rushing for 139 yards and four more scores. "I didn't want to let my teammates down, I didn't want to let my wife down, I didn't want to let Doge down, I didn't want to let my school down, or my family or my city or my country. I did this for everybody. We did this for everybody. And now we're champions again."

Backup quarterback Rajiv Singh passed for 127 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 246 yards and three more scores. Halfback Billy Shaw ran for 271 yards and four touchdowns, fullback Lance Williams ran for 53 yards and two majors, halfback Dan Roxas ran for 93 yards and halfback Joseph Anna ran for 62 yards and a score.

Wide receiver Jason Saka caught six passes for 113 yards and a touchdown, Roxas caught four passes for 100 yards and a major, and wide receiver Walter Berry caught two passes for 43 yards and another score. Four other players also caught a pass for a touchdown as both Cojuangco and Singh distributed the ball to 11 different receivers spanning the first and second teams.

Wide receiver Matt Pope led the blocking with 21 pancakes, wideout Zac Chabangu added 13 pancakes and wideout Johnny Muntari had 12. Cornerback Kelvin Davis led the team in tackles with 11 and added a sack and an interception. Cornerback Greg Essien had three picks, strong safety Richard Aquino had five swats, free safety Carmen Santos added two picks, and three different players on defense had two sacks each.

"Man, I am so happy for these boys," said Coach Kaname after the game. "They help make my job easier when they digest the game plan, internalize and visualize their roles on the field and execute their jobs. Everyone on this team puts the team above themselves and they got the work done. I congratulate them all on a job well done in defending our Pentagram."

Mitakihara end the season at 13-0.
