Bruno Okuno ran for 441 yards and five touchdowns as Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi destroyed the West Virginia Mountaineers in the pouring rain, 94-16, in the 2067 Big Game With No Name at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Quarterback Haruki Takayama passed for 164 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 240 yards and four more scores.

Fullback Joe Sato, making his debut, ran for 96 yard and three touchdowns; wide receiver Dee Dee Sonoda caught four passes for 104 yards and a score; and wide receiver Steve Takakamo led the blockers with 21 pancakes while Sonoda added 17. Freshman strong safety Shiroyuki Kaname had 13 tackles to lead the defense, middle linebacker Danny Miyanaga had 11 tackles and three other players on defense had an interception each.

"This was a big day out for Bruno," said Coach Kaname after the game. "We wanted him to go nuts against West Virginia because he deserved to. It was several months in the making, but his patience has been justly rewarded. I think we're going to see a lot more out of Bruno this year before the season is done."

Mitakihara improve to 1-0 and head to the other coast and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., next week, to face the UCLA Bruins.
