The Buckeyes ran a strange two point conversion formation in which backup QB Kenny Guiton lined up in the shotgun next to PK Drew Basil. The rest of the formation was lined up left, 7 blockers in front of RB Jordan Hall. On the first conversion, Guiton ran the ball in himself.
After the second touchdown, Guiton tossed it over to Jordan Hall for the score.
The Buckeyes came out in the formation after their third touchdown, but audibled into the traditional extra point. It remains to be seen if this formation will be used in other games or not. It is possible that Meyer wanted to test this formation out for future use. It is also possible Meyer could be attempting to give his opponents something else to gameplan for, potentially wasting their time. A third theory was that he was simply giving Guiton some snaps and getting the crowd excited. The 2 point plays worked and at one point the score was 23-13 after Buffalo failed to convert on their two point conversion attempt. As a result, the Buckeyes held a 2 possession lead in a situation that would have normally been a 21-14, 1 score game. What is your theory behind the formation?
