The defense held IBM's offense to under 300 yards, and Colby Cameron won the highly anticipated battle of the two top US quarterbacks in the X League completing 21 of 30 pass attempts for 230 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception. Cameron, the former Louisiana Tech signal caller and NCAA record holder for consecutive pass attempts without an interception (444), also ran for a score.

In a wild Pearl Bowl final QB Shun Sugawara first lead the Seagulls to the game-tying touchdown as time expired and then scored with an 8-yard run in the second overtime to give his team a 37-34 win in front of nearly 17.000 fans at the Tokyo Dome.<br><br> The game saw seven lead changes in regulation, the last one with just under nine minutes left when Cameron, who joined the Frontiers this spring after unsuccessfully trying out with the NFL's Carolina Panthers last summer, threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to WR Sei Kyo for a 28-22 lead. The Seagulls needed a huge offensive effort to avoid defeat going 81 yards in two minutes. With time running out Sugawara found RB Takuya Furutani in the endzone for a 19-yard touchdown pass.
