    It’s too soon to start calling Braxton Miller “Wally Pipp.” But senior quarterback Kenny Guiton has proven himself to be more than a backup.

Guiton threw for 276 yards and four touchdowns and also rushed for 92 yards in leading the Buckeyes to their third victory this season and 15th straight win overall under Urban Meyer. Guiton connected with wide receiver Devin Smith on a 90-yard touchdown pass less than two minutes into the game, and the Buckeyes raced out to a 21-0 lead and never really looked back. The Golden Bears climbed back to within 10, 24-14 at the end of the first quarter, but were never able to seriously mount a threat as the Buckeyes ran no-huddle most of the game as well. True freshman Jared Goff had a decent game and was just shy of 400 yards for the third straight game, completing 31 of 53 passes for 371 yards. H...
