After missing the last two weeks with a sprained knee, Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller is likelyto return to the lineup on Saturday against the Wisconsin Badgers in their Big Ten opener, but still expects to see backup Kenny Guiton getting play after he’s filled in admirably for the injured Miller.
“I think Braxton will probably start,” Meyer said after practice Wednesday. “He had a good day today, and it looks like he’s pretty close to 100 percent. I just wanted to make sure running the ball was good today, and he was and Kenny is good.
“Braxton took a good majority of the snaps this week in practice, like we did before he got hurt,” Meyer said. “We still had with Kenny Guiton, not necessarily a package, but we certainly let him practice a bunch.
The No. 2 Buckeyes will face one of their tougher tests this year, and given their weak schedule, they need to go undefeated to have a shot at getting to the BCS National Championship game.
The No. 23 Badgers hope to spoil that and make a repeat trip to the Big Ten title game after winning it last year.
