COLUMBUS, Ohio — A lot of top college teams have trouble finding one quality quarterback.
No. 4 Ohio State has two.
The problem for Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is he can only play one at a time and both have played well enough to start.
Braxton Miller, back from an injured knee, will get the starting nod against No. 23 Wisconsin on Saturday night, Meyer said after Wednesday’s practice.
“I think Braxton will probably start. He had a good day today, and it looks like he’s pretty close to 100 percent,” Meyer said. “I just wanted to make sure running the ball he’s good, too. And he was. And Kenny’s good.”
Then he voiced the problem that is clearly bothering him.
“We’re still working through exactly how we’re going to use them, to manage the game,” he said. “But they both look good.”
Kenny Guiton is coming off three terrific games and back-to-back Big Ten offensive player of the week honors. But he is still behind Miller, recovering from a sprained knee ligament
Meyer hasn’t figured out how, when or how much — of even if — he’ll use Guiton.
“That’s tough. That’s tough. I’ve had experience playing two in 2006, and it’s hard,” he said, referring to his national-championship season at Florida when he had both Chris Leak and Tim Tebow at quarterback. “When a guy gets a hot hand, or if he doesn’t get the hot hand, then when does he go back in? That’s a decision I can only make by myself. So we’ll see.”
• Three days after losing starting quarterback Jeff Driskel, the Florida Gators lost their best defensive player. Florida starting tackle Dominique Easley suffered a season-ending knee injury during Tuesday’s practice.
• Air Force quarterback Jaleel Awini was suspended from the team. The Academy said Awini “is no longer a cadet in good standing and is not allowed to represent the Academy in any outside activities, effective immediately.”
• Auburn starting wide receiver Jaylon Denson is out for the season with a torn patellar tendon in his leg.
• Suspended Brigham Young player Spencer Hadley from Connell said he violated the school’s honor code by drinking alcohol and partying in Las Vegas. He can’t rejoin the team until Oct. 25 at the earliest.
