Could the be (likely) the first time in the history of ever that we see a backup win the Heisman Trophy? Check out these mind-boggling stats!
Kenny came into Ohio State’s first game of the season when the uber-hyped Braxton Miller tweaked his knee. He wasn’t in long, but did manage to go 1/1 for 21 yards and rush for 6. Not really a big deal. But the next week, Guiton was once again called on when Miller went down and proceeded to throw 19/28 for 152 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT and rushed for 83 yards and a TD on 9 carries.
Now here’s the big one. Tonight, against the California Golden Bears, Guiton’s stats look like this: 21/32 for 276 yards, 4 TDs, and 92 rushing yards.
So in not even 2 full games, Kenny Guiton is 41/61 (67.2%) for 449 yards, 6 TDs, 1 INT, 181 rushing yards and 1 rushing TD. Compare this to the top 2 candidates in Clemson’s Tajh Boyd and Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater and I’d say Guiton is certainly in the running.
Boyd: (2 games) 32/53 (60.4%) for 439 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INT, 52 rushing yards and 3 rushing TDs.
Bridgewater: (3 games) 46/60 (76.7%) for 752 yards, 9 TDs, 1 INT, 0 rushing yards.
