Ohio State redshirt-senior quarterback Kenny Guiton threw six touchdown passes in the first half of Saturday’s game against Florida A&M, setting the single-game school record for touchdown passes.

Guiton broke the record on a 15-yard touchdown pass to Evan Spencer with five seconds remaining in the first half. He completed 24 of his first 34 passes for 215 yards and six touchdowns with one interception. The Buckeyes took a 55-0 lead into halftime.

The record was previously held by Bobby Hoying, who completed five touchdown passes in a game against Pittsburgh in 1995 and Purdue in 1994, and John Borton, who threw five touchdown passes against Washington State in 1952.

Guiton, who won the Walter Camp Offensive Player of the Week after completing 21 of 32 passes for 276 yards and four touchdowns in the Buckeyes’ 52-34 win at California, started in place of injured junior quarterback Braxton Miller.
