Columbus, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Kenny Guiton set a Ohio State Buckeyes record of six touchdown passes, all in the first half, keying a 76-0 victory against Florida A&M Saturday at Ohio Stadium.
It was the most lopsided win since 1935 for the No. 4 Buckeyes (4-0).
Guiton, starring in place of the injured Braxton Miller, completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards.
On third down from the 3, Guiton’s pass into the end zone was picked off by Patrick Aiken. Aiken, however, elected to try to run the ball out and got hit by running back Jordan Hall, fumbling the ball away.
On the next play, Hall scored the first of his two touchdowns.
Guiton later tossed an 11-yard TD pass to Jeff Heuerman for a 13-0 lead.
Doran Grant blocked the next FAMU punt and Guiton hit Evan Spencer for a 20-0 lead in the opening 6 minutes.
It was 34-0 in the end of the first quarter after Guiton hit Devin Smith for the score.
In the second quarter, Guiton found Chris Fields for a 48-0 advantage.
FAMU finally then picked up its initial first down through Lemond Buice.
Guiton later passed to Evan Spencer for a 55-0 lead and his sixth touchdown, eclipsing the previous record of five touchdowns held by Bobby Hoying and John Borton.
Borton set the record against Washington State in 1952. Hoying tied it twice in games against Pittsburgh in 1995 and Purdue in 1994.
With the Buckeyes up 55-0, Meyer brought in his substitutes. FAMU (1-3), suffered its worst loss ever.
