The X League champion was simply too much for the collegiate side — again.

Trashaun Nixson rushed for 206 yards and two touchdowns and earned game MVP honors, while Michael Birdsong threw two scoring passes, leading the Fujitsu Frontiers to a 52-17 rout of the Kwansei Gakuin University Fighters on Thursday at Tokyo Dome in the annual Rice Bowl.

The triumph gave the Frontiers, who clinched their third straight X League title last month, a third consecutive Rice Bowl triumph and fourth overall.
