Kenny Guiton set a school record with six touchdowns in one half of football on Saturday afternoon as Ohio State destroyed Florida A&M 76-0 in Columbus.
It wasn’t the first time this season Guiton looked good either, as he blitzed California for 276 yards and four touchdowns last week in his first start of the season.
Through two starts, Guiton has 10 touchdowns and 491 yards passing. He has 664 yards on 65-of-95 passing for the season.
Those numbers have led some to speculate that Ohio State needs to stick with the hot hand and sit preseason Heisman front-runner Braxton Miller until Guiton proves he isn’t worthy.
Except, there is one major flaw in that line of thinking—Guiton managed to torch two terrible defenses in back-to-back weeks.
Its not as if he lit up a quality Big Ten squad for a ton of touchdowns or yards.
There’s no doubt Guiton looks like a competent quarterback behind center, but there is a mountain of difference between doing that against the Rattlers of Florida A&M and doing it against a Big Ten defense, let alone who will be rolling into Columbus next weekend—Wisconsin.
