It’s week two of the 2013 season, and the Ohio State Football team is still undefeated, folks! The Buckeyes defeated San Diego State 42-7 in Ohio Stadium on Saturday. However, the win came at a small price. Backup QB Kenny Guiton shined on Saturday, taking over for the injured Braxton Miller On the Buckeyes opening drive, Miller was scrambling for a first down in the redzone when he was hit hard and pinned between two defenders. Ohio State evaluated Miller’s left knee and immediately put it in a brace. Miller would not return to the game after the team diagnosed the injury as a sprained knee. Sideline reports stated that Miller could have returned if he was needed. However, when one door closes another door opens, and backup QB Kenny Guiton kicked down that door with his breakout performance on Saturday. The senior captain completed 19 of 28 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 83 yards and another touchdown on the ground. In his previous 16 games, Guiton had completed 14 of 25 passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions and only 59 yards rushing on a measly 14 attempts. Not too shabby, Kenny G. The Buckeyes got off to a hot start, leading 21-0 at the end of the first quarter. Freshman RB Dontre Wilson had a 7 yard score just after Miller’s injury, followed by a 27  yard touchdown connection between Guiton and WR Philly Brown. The quarter would end with a 4 yard rushing touchdown from RB Jordan Hall. However, unlike the season opener against Buffalo (where the Buckeyes would only win 40-20 after leading 23-0 after the first), the Buckeyes never let the Aztecs into the game. San Diego State’s solo score was a touchdown in the third quarter, while the Buckeyes would proceed to tack on three more touchdowns of their own. If you experienced Deja Vu on Saturday, you most likely weren’t the only one, seeing as this week wasn’t the first time Guiton would save the day for Meyer and the Buckeyes. Guiton had taken over for an injured Miller late in last season’s battle against Purdue, coming in the game trailing by eight points with 47 seconds left at his own 35-yard line. The then-junior QB would lead the Buckeyes on an unbelievable drive, culminating in a just-as-amazing touchdown. The cherry on top was Gution throwing for the 2-point conversion to force overtime. The Buckeyes won 29-22, which would prove to be the saving grace for Ohio State’s sixth undefeated, unblemished season in school history. The team hasn’t spoken on whether Miller will play next week as the Buckeyes fly across the country to visit the Cal Golden Bears. Regardless of who’s leading the team, the Buckeyes and Head Coach Urban Meyer will look to keep their undefeated 2013 campaign alive at 7 p.m. ET next Saturday.
