Fox analyst Charles Davis was in the booth calling the Ohio State vs. Cal game with broadcast partner Gus Johnson Saturday night, and after Kenny Guiton led the No. 4 Buckeyes past the Golden Bears, he came away impressed.
Guiton completed 21 of 32 passes for 276 yards and four touchdowns (against no interceptions) to complement 92 rushing yards on 14 carries. In his first career start, Guiton orchestrated an offense that piled up 608 yards and a season-high 52 points against the Golden Bears.
Davis shared his thoughts on Kenny Guiton, his impressions of Ohio State’s defense and talked about the Buckeyes’ status as a national title contender in a conversation with Bleacher Report.
Bleacher Report: What was your impression of Kenny Guiton?
Charles Davis: Well it was hard not to be impressed. To watch him go out there and do what he did in that early blitzkrieg…The coaching staff trusted him so much, and it became so apparent.
