Report

Kwansei Gakuin University Fighters won the 2019 Koshien Bowl in Japan’s College Football with a 38-28 victory over Waseda Big Bears in the Final match. They had earlier finished runners-up in the Kansai Collegiate American Football Association with a loss to Ritsumeikan Panthers in the Regular season, but made no mistake in the Playoffs, knocking out first Kyushu Champions Seinan Gakuin Green Dolphins 47-26 in the West Japan 2nd Round, before defeating two big Kansai rivals (Kobe Ravens and revenge over Ritsumeikan Panthers) in the West Japan Semi-Finals and Final.

Waseda University Big Bears had defeated North Japan Pine Bowl Champions Tohoku University Hornets 41-10 in the East Japan Bowl (Kanto v North Japan). The North Japan Bowl between the Tohoku Champions (Tohoku Hornets) and Hokkaido Champions (Hokkaido Big Green) had been a blowout (34-9 to Tohoku) as had the West Japan 1st Round match between Chukyo Eagles (Tokai Champions) and Chushikoku Champions Hiroshima Raccoons who were defeated 7-59. Chukyo then lost to Kobe Ravens in the West Japan 2nd Round. Kansai, being the biggest Association, gets three representatives in the College Playoffs.
