The level of play in Ivy League football is still a few steps ahead of the Japanese collegiate league, even for the four-time defending college champion Kwansei Gakuin University Fighters.

The Princeton Tigers scored five touchdowns and a field goal in their first seven possessions to rout the Fighters 36-7 on Saturday at Kincho Stadium in the Legacy Bowl, an exhibition game to celebrate Kwansei Gakuin's 125th anniversary year.

Playing before a crowd of 4,500, mostly cheering for the host, the Tigers were simply bigger, faster and more powerful than the Fighters, who have won a national-record 27 collegiate titles including the last four seasons in a row.
