Tatsuya Kaname's Mitakihara Magi are champions of college football once again after a 94-40 shootout win over Hikari Sakishima's Navy Midshipmen in the 2072 BCS National Championship Game at the Louisiana SuperDome in New Orleans, La. Quarterback Russ Opare passed for 103 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 298 yards and three more scxores to lead the Magi to their 58th National Championship.

Halfback Kodaka Onodera ran for 227 yards and two touchdowns, fullback Corey Addy ran for 220 yards and three scores, halfback Drew Childs ran for 101 yards and a major, and both fullback Isaac Nwofor and halfback Shannon Wright also scored a touchdown on the ground. Wide receiver Will Atsu caught a 54-yard pass for a score while leading the blockers with 28 pancakes. Left tackle Mario Washington had 11 pancakes, wideout Larry Igiebor had nine pancakes and left guard William Carter had six pancakes.

Middle linebacker Ernest Macklin led a steady defensive effort with 17 tackles and two interceptions, while cornerback Henry Waris had 11 tackles and right outside linebacker Josiah Cofie had 10 tackles and a sack. Strong safety Daniel Manatsu had a pick, while left end Kazuki S. Biyik closed off a strong freshman campaign with six tackles and five sacks.

"This is an awesome corps of guys that came to this program looking for a national championship and they got it done," said Coach Kaname after the game. "You can see it in their eyes, they were hungry to defend their Pentagram. This victory is dedicated to our students, our fans, our alumni and parents, our faculty and administration, and all of Canada for getting behind us this season, as they have always had done for the past six decades. We thank you all and we'll be coming back home to the island soon."

Mitakihara close out their season at 13-0.
