YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan – Kacey Walker and Andrew Urette combined for five touchdowns and led a potent Nile C. Kinnick running attack to a 63-0 win Saturday over Seoul American that helped throw the race for Far East Division I title-game space wide open.

Coupled with American School In Japan’s 34-20 win over two-time defending D-I champion Kadena, also on Saturday, four teams remain in the chase for berths in the Far East championship game, scheduled for Nov. 12 at the home of the team with the best regular-season record.
