The Ohio State Buckeyes had a player that they thought could be a Heisman Trophy winner this season. It turns out, they might have two. With starting QB Braxton Miller out with an injury, backup Kenny Guiton set the OSU record for touchdown passes in a game with 6….in the first half.
Braxton who? Ohio State’s Kenny Guiton has @OhioStFootball school record with 6 pass TD in a game. He did it in a HALF.

Ohio State has opened up a 55-0 lead over Florida A&M University in Columbus. Now granted, this is not exactly the Michigan Wolverines that the Buckeyes are playing but it is a college that has a football team and presumably 11 defenders on the other side of the ball.
Guiton isn’t the only one having a good day for the Buckeyes. The entire defense for OSU has absolutely shut down the FAMU offensive attack today. To give you an idea of how good they have been, Guiton has 6 touchdowns and only thrown for 215 yards passing on 24 of 34 attempts. The entire offense has 326 total yards which is miniscule when compared with the 55-0 score.
I don’t believe that Braxton Miller is in danger of losing his job when he returns from injury, but I will say that his rehab might be a little more aggresive after watching his backup doing so well in his absence.
