Ohio State quarterback Kenny Guiton earns Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week honors

Backup Ohio State quarterback Kenny Guiton has stepped in admirably for injured starter Braxton Miller, and now the Buckeyes have a quarterback dilemma on its hands.

It also has an award winner, too.

On Monday, the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award named Guiton its National Player of the Week for his Week 4 performance.

Guiton completed 24-of-34 passing attempts for 215 yards and a school-record six touchdowns in the first half of Ohio State’s 76-0 win against Florida A&M.

Through three games, Guiton has completed 55-of-86 attempts for 593 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions.

The Award also named Baylor junior quarterback Bryce Petty, Texas sophomore running back Jonathan Gray and Baylor junior wide receiver Antwan Goodley honorable mentions for Week 4.

Alongside Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon, Guiton was named the Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week for Week 4. Last week, Guiton was also named for the same honor, and he was named the Walter Camp Player of the Week.
