With quarterback Braxton Miller resting his injured left knee for a second straight game, Guiton and OSU iced this one early in a 34-point first quarter.

The Buckeyes found the end zone on eight of their nine first-half drives. The other possession ended with FAMU linebacker George Elijah Maxey intercepting Guiton in the back of the end zone, inexplicably taking it out, and losing a fumble at the Rattlers 3-yard line. Jordan Hall punched in a three-yard touchdown run on the next play.

It was that kind of day. Guiton threw touchdown passes to Evan Spencer (two), Jeff Heuerman, Devin Smith, Carlos Hyde, and Chris Fields. In the first half, the fifth-year senior completed 24 of 34 passes for 215 yards.

FIRST QUARTER

No. 4 Ohio State is rocking Florida A&M 34-0 after the first quarter of today's nonconference snoozer at Ohio Stadium.

With quarterback Braxton Miller resting his injured left knee for a second straight game, backup Kenny Guiton and the Buckeyes found the end zone on all but their first drive. That possession ended with FAMU linebacker George Elijah Maxey intercepting Guiton in the back of the end zone, inexplicably taking it out, and losing a fumble at the Rattlers 3-yard line. Jordan Hall punched in a three-yard touchdown run on the next play.

Guiton threw touchdown passes to tight end Jeff Heuerman and wideouts Evan Spencer and Devin Smith. Carlos Hyde also had a 1-yard TD in his first game back from a three-game suspension.

The Buckeyes held the Rattlers to four three-and-outs while Bradley Roby ended the visitors' other drive with his first interception of the season.
