At Romney Stadium on the campus of Utah State University in Logan, Utah, USA, quarterback Shae Katou-Aki passed for 396 yards, ran for 398 more and scored 10 total touchdowns on offence as Dan Harding's Leafa College Spirit pounced on the Utah State Aggies, 128-20. Right outside linebacker David Hazuki had 12 tackles and three sacks to go with a forced fumble.

Halfback Jackson Tatara ran for 318 yards and three majors while catching seven passes for 142 yards and a score, halfback Archer Hiiro ran for 136 yards and two touchdowns, wide receiver Connnor Yasaka caught four passes for 46 yards and two majors, and wideout Xavier Kim had eight receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown while leading the blockers with 30 pancake blocks.

Middle linebacker Roy Hanamura had 15 tackles, left end Sam "Yokuzuna" Touzokuyama and right end Lewis "Sack Man" Sakishima each had three sacks apiece, cornerbacks Zach Choi and Sebastian Kamiya each had an interception and even Katou-Aki himself recorded a sack, adding to his versatility on both sides on the ball.

Meanwhile, on the home front, three new first-year players will join the Spirit Gridiron Team for Season 2076. The players are defensive tackle Kieran Hyakuya, right end Val Kiryuu-Cranell and middle linebacker Kent Age-Reynolds. All hail from Launceston, Tasmania and will enroll at the college in January 2076. Leafa improve to 5-0 and continue their road trip next week against the UNLV Rebels.
