Kenny Guiton sets Ohio State record with six touchdown passes


To no one's surprise, Ohio State eviscerated FCS opponent Florida A&M on Saturday in a 76-0 win. Starting quarterback Braxton Miller missed his second consecutive game with an injured knee, but coach Urban Meyer could've used his wife, Shelley, at quarterback and it wouldn't have mattered.

As it was, backup QB Kenny Guiton threw a school-record six touchdown passes -- all in the first half -- to lead the rout.

In the postgame news conference, Meyer said that Miller will be the starter when he returns. The "when" is the question.

Ohio State opens Big Ten play next week against Wisconsin. Guiton, a senior, has played excellent football, but the opponents have been San Diego State, California and Florida A&M. Wisconsin will be a huge step up in competition.

Meyer said last week that even when Miller did come back, he wanted Guiton to get some snaps each game. As well as he has played, he deserves them. Guiton (6-foot-3, 208 pounds) is an athletic guy with a nice arm who can make plays with his legs.
