Jim Rinaldi/Icon SMIKenny Guiton came to the rescue for the Buckeyes against Purdue, leading a drive for the game-tying touchdown and then another TD in overtime.
1. The closer: Kenny Guiton had to do more than finish off a drive this time, and while the success wasn't nearly as instant against the Boilermakers, his relief appearance at quarterback will go down as perhaps the most memorable performance of the season for the Buckeyes. Up against seemingly insurmountable odds, needing a touchdown and a two-point conversion on the final drive with no timeouts and only 47 seconds, Guiton delivered both to further enhance his reputation.
