Depending on who you talk to, San Jose State students and boosters consider their school to be the center of the universe. If that's the case, Dan Harding's Leafa Spirit Gridiron Team left a big black hole in it and threw the Spartans into the abyss, winning 140-35 at Spartan Stadium in San Jose, Calif. in a driving rainstorm. Quarterback Cooper Kanie passes for 499 yards, rushed for 463 yards and scored 13 total touchdowns on offense while middle linebacker Roy Hanamura led the defense with 22 tackles and two interceptions.

"I don't buy the pretentious banter from our opponents this week," said Coach Harding after the game. "If you're going to talk the talk, you need to walk the walk. They didn't, and we made them pay for it. Cooper was amazing under center and we delivered a balanced performance on both sides on the ball. Good effort from the lads today."

Halfback Jackson Tatara ran for 251 yards and two touchdowns, halfback Ethan Wakamatsu ran for 118 yards and four major scores, wide receiver Xavier Kim caught five passes for 123 yards and two touchdowns and wideout Dayne Tsunashi caught four passes for two majors. Kim led the blockers with 26 pancakes while Tsunashi had 22. Cornerback Vic Tsuchimikado and Daniel Tachibana also had two picks on the day.

Leafa improve to 11-0 and conclude the home-and-away season away to the Nevada Wolf Pack of Reno, Nev. next week.
