BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - Kenny Guiton threw three of his four touchdown passes in the first six minutes of his first career start and No. 4 Ohio State rolled to its 15th straight victory, 52-34 over California on Saturday.
Guiton, a fifth-year senior, got the start in place of injured Braxton Miller and there was no drop-off in performance for the Buckeyes (3-0).
Guiton connected with Devin Smith on a 90-yard pass on Ohio State's second offensive play for the longest play from scrimmage in school history. He added a 47-yard touchdown to Smith and a 1-yarder to Chris Fields on fourth-and-goal as Ohio State jumped out to a 21-0 lead over the Golden Bears (1-2) less than halfway through the first quarter.
Guiton completed 21 of 32 passes for 276 yards and added 92 yards rushing to lead the Buckeyes.
