College careerEdit

2012 seasonEdit

Kenny Guiton would see his first meaningful playing time in the eighth game of the 2012 season. Trailing Purdue 14-20 late in the third quarter, Guiton was brought in to replace injured Braxton Miller.[3] Down 14-22 with less than a minute remaining, Guiton lead the Buckeye offence on 61 yard drive, capped off with a touchdown pass to Chris Fields and a game tying two-point conversion pass to Jeff Heuerman. The Buckeyes would prevail 29-22 in overtime, preserving an unblemished 8-0 record in a season that Ohio State would finish 12-0.

2013 SeasonEdit

In the second game of the season against San Diego State, Guiton would again be called upon to replace an injured Braxton Miller. Guiton played the remainder of the game and would start the subsequent next two games, all Buckeye victories.

In his second start, Guiton set an Ohio State single-game record with a six touchdown pass first-half performance against Florida A&M.[4]
