For the first time in over a decade, Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi football team were forced to run laps—24 in all—after conceding their first safety at home since November 4, 2056. Despite running one the track 24 times at Tatsuya Kaname Field in the middle of the night, the Magi steamrolled past the Missouri Tigers, 70-12, on Magia Day at the Sakura Bowl in Mitakihara Town, B.C.

Haruki Takayama passed for 304 yards and three touchdowns, halfback Bruno Okuno ran for 80 yards and two scores while catching six passes for 62 yards and another touchdown and halfback Jansen Onjouji ran for 121 yards and a major while catching five passes for 94 yards Fullback James Stanley ran for 49 yards and a touchdown and wide receiver Shane Balogun caught five passes for 78 yards.

Left guard Sean Scott led the blockers on offense with six pancakes. Left end Shintarou Okabe paced the defense with 10 tackles, defensive tackle Sean Yamashita had six tackles and a sack, and cornerback Tarzan Takagi returned an interception 89 yards for a touchdown.

"I don't know why our team tends to give up safeties at home; that just baffles me every time I see it," said Coach Kaname after the game. "Our players need to get the ball out of the end zone. That was a safety that was completely avoidable. This is all on Bruno and the offensive line for not doing their part. So we need to fix that heading into the BCS National Championship Game because that gets on my bad side easily. Otherwise, our players put on a good show and now we get to amp things up going forward."

Mitakihara improve to 12-0 on the season.
