Wow, what a game. Anyone that would have ever guessed that Kenny Guiton would be the hero in a Buckeyes victory likely would have been labeled as crazy before this one. But Braxton Miller’s injury forced Guiton into the ballgame, where he miraculously saved the Buckeyes’ perfect season by leading the team to two TDs and a two-point conversion in the final minute of regulation and overtime. The Ohio State defense then held the Boilermakers on fourth down, securing the 29-22 victory.
