A rock-solid pass rush and a balanced offensive attack highlighted a 133-19 victory for Tatsuya Kaname's No. 1 ranked Mitakihara Magi over the No. 10 ranked North Carolina Tar Heels at Kenan Memorial Stadium in Chapel Hill, N.C. Quarterback Russ Opare ran the gamut on offense, passing for 228 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 321 yards and seven scores. Other players on offense also stepped up for Madoka.

Halfback Kodaka Onodera ran for 287 yards and four touchdowns, fullback Corey Addy ran for 204 yards and three scores, halfback Drew Childs ran for 58 yards and another major, wide receiver Marcus Mba caught three passes for 83 yards, wideout Larry Igiebor caught three passes for 43 yards and a touchdown and wideout Chris Babatunde caught two passes for 60 yards and a score. Igiebor led the blockers on offense with 30 pancakes while Atsu added 23 pancakes.

The "S" in left end Kazuki S. Biyik's name stands for Schlierensauer—he claims German, Swiss, French and Japanese blood and is the son of Kazumi Schlierensauer '50 and the great-grandson of French musician Patrick Biyik—but it can also stand for "seven" and "sack." That's because Biyik broke through with his best performance of his young career with 10 tackles and seven sacks. Left outside linebacker Joey Agyemang Badu had four sacks, cornerback Alvin Chibsah had 10 tackles and an interception returned 53 yards for a touchdown, and middle linebacker Ernest Macklin had 14 tackles and a pick. To add icing on the cake, halfback Marvin Ainooson returned a punt 61 yards for a score in the third quarter.

Mitakihara improve to 4-0 and conclude their road trip by heading south to Columbia, S.C. to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks.
