Kevin Hogan may be just what the sputtering Stanford offense is looking for.
The redshirt freshman quarterback and member of the 2011 U.S. Under-19 National Team threw for 184 yards and ran for a team-high 48 more, playing most of the final 3½ quarters Saturday during a 48-0 win over Colorado.
Hogan came on during Stanford’s third series in relief of senior Josh Nunes and completed 18-of-23 passes with two TDs and no interceptions. Hogan led Stanford to touchdowns on his first four drives, then added two more scoring drives in the third quarter to put the game away.
His 20-yard scramble on third-and-9 helped keep one of those series alive.
“He's fast. He can run. He's athletic. He can throw on the move, to the left and to the right,” Stanford head coach David Shaw said. “We saw him push up in the pocket and find his check-downs. And I can't find a lot of negatives to what he did today. I'm very, very impressed.
“He’s been showing it to us in practice. He’s been doing extremely well. As time has gone, he’s gotten more comfortable.”
Hogan said he hopes to build on this performance but isn’t counting on being named the starter. That’s up to others to decide.
“Whatever the coaches think,” Hogan said. “It was a good team win. Whatever they choose, I’m happy with."
Also for Stanford, Alex Carter (2011) had three tackles and forced a fumble; Devon Cajuste (2011) caught one pass for 7 yards; A.J. Tarpley (2010) and Wayne Lyons (2011) each had a tackle; and Ty Montgomery (2011) caught one pass for 5 yards.
Huff scores twice for Oregon
Josh Huff (2010) led fourth-ranked Oregon with 125 yards receiving and two TDs on six receptions Saturday, helping Oregon beat Southern Cal, 62-51.
The junior wideout scored on plays of 21 and 36 yards, fueling the Ducks’ high-powered attack. Oregon finished with 730 yards of offense. That total and the 62 points are the most ever allowed by USC since the school began playing football in 1888.
Anthony Sarao (2011) made three tackles for the Trojans in defeat.
Shipley, Bergeron reach end zone for Texas
Jaxon Shipley (2010) and Joe Bergeron (2010) scored Texas’ first two touchdowns Saturday, helping the No. 23 Longhorns jumpsart a 31-22 win over No. 18 Texas Tech.
Shipley opened the scoring with a 6-yard TD catch from David Ash. Later in the first quarter, Bergeron added a 2-yard TD run.
Sandwiched between those touchdowns was a 1-yard TD run by Texas Tech’s Kenny Williams, a 2011 Under-19 teammate of Shipley and Bergeron.
Shipley finished with two catches for 30 yards. Bergeron had 19 total yards on six touches. Williams led Texas Tech with 71 yards on 18 carries to go with three catches for 22 yards.
