Colby Cameron completed 35 of 48 passes for 304 yards and two TD passes to Takeshi Akiyama and scored another on an 8-yard run, leading the defending national champion Fujitsu Frontiers to a 34-24 victory over the Lixil Deers on Sunday at Yokohama Stadium.

The Frontiers finished the regular season with a perfect 7-0 record and earned the No. 1 seed in the four-team playoffs. The Deers, who needed a win to advance to the postseason, suffered their second loss of the season to finish 5-2. They are tied with the Obic Seagulls and the Nojima Sagamihara Rise at 5-2, but were knocked out of the playoffs because of the strength of schedule.

At Osaka's Kincho Stadium on Sunday, the Panasonic Impulse defeated the Rise 36-0 to stay undefeated with a 7-0 record. The Impulse, who are seeded second because of the strength of the second stage, will play the No. 3 Rise again at Kincho Stadium on Nov. 29. The Frontiers take on the fourth-seeded Seagulls on the same day at Yokohama Stadium. The seeding between the Rise and Seagulls was decided by their head-to-head result during the season. The Rise beat the Seagulls 20-17.
