Apparently, Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi were saving their best for last. In the 2071 BCS National Championship Game at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., the Magi rolled past the Oklahoma Sooners, 234-59, thanks to a blend of offense, defense and special teams. Quarterback Russ Opare passed for 382 yards and five touchdowns while rushing for 97 yards and two more scores to pace the Magi.

Halfback Drew Childs ran for 200 yards and three touchdowns, backup quarterback B.J. Inkoom passed for 118 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 65 yards and another major, halfback Joe Sato ran for 94 yards and three scores, fullback Ian McKinley ran for 110 yards and a major, and in his breakout game, junior fullback Corey Addy ran for 232 yards and six touchdowns.

Wide receiver Will Atsu caught three passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns while Sato caught three passes for 119 yards and another pair of scores. Wide receiver Larry Igiebor led the blockers with 26 pancakes while wideout Anthony Injera added 25 pancxakes. Left tackle Jeremy Amoako had 12 pancakes, left guard Charles Sumaila had 11 pancakes and wide receiver Chris Babatunde added nine pancakes. Eight different players on offense had at least seven pancake blocks each.

On defense, cornerback James Boye led in tackles with 13 tackles and a sack. Left end Jamaal Taha put an exclamation point to his Magi career with 11 tackles and four sacks, while junior middle linebacker Ernest Macklin had six tackles, three sacks and an interception. Middle linebacker Shannon Agyei had nine tackles and a pick, while strong safety Shiroyuki Kaname had three tackles and four interceptions. Right end Rex Hasegawa had four sacks, cornerback Henry Waris had two picks and defensive tackle Dev Acura finished his Magi career with four tackles and three sacks.

But the player that stole the show for the Mitakihara Magi was none other than freshman halfback Shannon "The Irishman from Saskatoon" Wright. He returned seven kickoffs for 415 yards and four touchdowns while returning nine punts for 190 yards and two more scores. For his efforts, Wright was named the Most Valuable Player of the Game for his best performance ever as a punt and kick returner.

Mitakihara finish the 2070 season with a record of 13-0. They have won 57 of the last 60 national championships contested, making the Magi football team the Program of the 21st Century.
