Kenny Guiton has made a name for himself as a reliable backup. Saturday night at Cal, we’ll see how the veteran sub does as the starter. Guiton will get his first career start in place of star Braxton Miller, who injured his knee last week vs. San Diego State.
Guiton filled in admirably for Miller last week, going 19-of-28 for 152 yards and two touchdowns; he also added a game-high 83 rushing yards, including a 44-yard scoring scamper.
The senior made a big name for him last season, when he rallied the Buckeyes past Purdue after Miller exited the game with an injury.
This is the best first-half performance from a "sub" since Spike Albrecht went crazy in NCAA title game.—
