Found September 25, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
While Braxton Miller will play this Saturday night when the fourth ranked Buckeyes take on No. 23 Wisconsin, but it’s still unclear just how many snaps he’ll see. In the Ohio State depth chart released on Wednesday, Miller and fifth-year senior Kenny Guiton. Urban Meyer was noncommittal in his latest press conference, saying the team’s starting quarterback is Miller “or” Guiton. “I think if [Miller] has a great week of practice, he will [start],” said Meyer. “I want to make sure I’m doing right by Kenny Guiton, so it’s more complicated than that.” While Miller was the 2012 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Guiton has deputized impressively since the preseason Heisman favorite left the first quarter of the Buckeyes’ week two victory over San Diego State with a sprained left knee. Over the last two games – his first two collegiate starts – Guiton has completed 45 of 66 passes for 491 yards, 10 touchdowns, and only one interception. He has also added 15 rushes for 97 yards on the way to consecutive Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honors. On the year, Guiton has thrown for 664 yards, 13 touchdowns and two interceptions on 65 of 95 passing (68.4%) and rushed for 186 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries. In just over one game of action, Miller is 17 of 24 (70.8%) for 208 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He has also rushed 18 times for 82 yards. The Buckeyes face the Badgers at Ohio Stadium at 8:00 PM ET on Saturday.
