Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan completed 16 of 19 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 31-10 win over UCLA.
We think this was the same Kevin Hogan who has played all season, but we are not sure. The quarterback was able to connect on throws in rhythm or when moved off his spot. Hogan was very good at keeping his eyes up when climbing the pocket or resetting, and even rushed for 46 yards. Nov 29 - 9:46 AM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 15-of-20 passing for 214 yards and an interception in Saturday's 38-17 win over Cal.

He added seven rushes for 46 yards and a touchdown. Stanford, perhaps due to his throwing issues, has asked Hogan to be more of a running threat this season. That added dimension to his game occasionally helps this sluggish offense move the chains, but Hogan won't be confused with Michael Vick anytime soon. His NFL prospects are tied to his ability to make huge advances as a thrower in 2015.
Nov 23 - 7:54 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 21-of-29 passing for 237 yards and an interception in Saturday's loss to Oregon.

In an effort to jumpstart the sluggish offense, the Cardinal are in the process of rethinking the way they use Hogan, deploying him now more on designed runs, zone reads, and quarterback keepers. Regardless of how it turns out, 2014 will be looked back upon as a lost season for Hogan. This was a prospect ranked No. 10 overall coming into the season by CBS Sports' Rob Rang, who compared him, at the time, to Philip Rivers. Hogan has one more season to rehabilitate his stock.
Nov 2 - 8:46 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 18-of-28 passing for 277 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions in Saturday's victory over Oregon State.

Stanford was uncharacteristically aggressive through the air, leading to almost 10 yards per attempt for Hogan but also a pair of interceptions. The latter number tied Hogan's season high, but it didn't much matter across from an Oregon State outfit that couldn't get out of its own way. Hogan seemed like a lock to enter the draft in the offseason, but a down year has analysts expecting him to return to school to exhaust his eligibility next fall.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 19-of-39 passing for 212 yards in Saturday's loss to Arizona State.

We have to wonder if Hogan is playing at less than 100-percent health. His completion percentage is slightly up this season (62.4 percent) from last (61.0), but the good news essentially ends there. He's averaging a yard-and-a-half less per attempt (7.32 this season compared to 8.92 last year) and his QB rating (137.3/151.5) and adjusted QBR (46.9/80.5) are both far lower than in 2013. He's already been sacked 14 times, the same amount as last season, despite sitting behind a seriously talented offensive line. CBS Sports' Rob Rang ranked Hogan as the No. 10 overall prospect on his first big board back in May. Today, he might not even rank No. 110.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 23-of-35 passing for 284 yards and three touchdowns in Friday's 34-17 victory over Washington State.

Hogan made the start despite suffering an undisclosed leg injury in the second half against Notre Dame last week. After being hampered by a propensity to lock onto his first read and throwing inaccurately versus the Cougars, Hogan bounced back in a big way against a Wazzu defense that rarely mounts much resistance. He's gone 112-for-171 for 1,325 yards and a 11/4 TD/INT ratio this season.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan is expected to start Friday against Washington State despite suffering from an undisclosed leg injury.

Head coach David Shaw said Hogan sustained the injury in the second half against Notre Dame. Perhaps it contributed to Hogan's poor performance, however, we aren't sure a leg injury forces a quarterback to lock onto his first read or display accuracy issues. Backup Evan Crower could see time if Hogan does miss game action.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan was given a -0.9 game score by Pro Football Focus for his work versus Notre Dame on Saturday.

"Hogan looked excellent on the Stanford touchdown drive that put them ahead in the fourth quarter, but for much of the game his deep accuracy was lacking, with plenty of opportunities missed," wrote Gordon McGuinness. "He struggled when put under pressure too, going 1-for-8 with a grade of -2.9 on plays when Notre Dame were able to pressure him." Hogan finished 18-of-36 for 158 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the 17-14 loss. He's gone 89-for-136 for 1,041 yards and an 8/4 TD/INT ratio this season.
Oct 6 - 10:59 PM

CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote that Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan "sailed passes over the head of several open receivers" in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame.

Hogan went 18-of-36 for 158 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the 17-14 setback. This dud -- in poor weather on the road against an elite opponent -- can be forgiven, but we're troubled by Hogan's consistent struggles this year. He's 89-for-136 for 1,041 yards and an 8/4 TD/INT ratio, playing the worst football that we've seen since Hogan stepped foot on campus.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 18-of-36 passing for 158 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 17-14 loss to Notre Dame.

It's officially time to start worrying about Hogan. He's gone 89-for-136 for 1,041 yards and an 8/4 TD/INT ratio. His QB rating (143.3), raw QBR (43.6) and adjusted QBR (44.2) are all well lower than his marks from last season. For that matter, all are lower than the numbers he had as a freshman in 2012. Hogan was in play to jump early to the NFL in the preseason (CBS Sports' Rob Rang compared him to Philip Rivers), but his struggles seem to guarantee he'll be back with the Cardinal in 2015.
Oct 5 - 7:06 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 17-of-26 passing for 178 yards, a touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 20-13 win against Washington.

He was more effective scrambling around, accumulating 53 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Hogan struggled against the Huskies, but he'd been dynamite before that, completing over 70-percent of his passes in all three games and posting a 7/1 TD/INT ratio. CBS Sports' Rob Rang compared Hogan to Philip Rivers prior to the season.
Sep 28 - 9:41 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 20-of-28 passing for 216 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Saturday's 35-0 win against Army.

The 15th-ranked Cardinal didn't get much resistance in this one, as the Black Knights elected to throw the ball only five times despite the fact that they trailed essentially the entire way. Because of the opponent, it's impossible to evaluate Hogan's performance. Stanford has a bye week on deck. They'll use that to prepare for a road date in Washington.
Sep 14 - 12:17 AM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan went 22-for-30 for 285 yards in Saturday's 13-10 loss to USC.

Hogan avoided mistakes until the very end, when he got drilled from behind by J.R. Tavai and fumbled on the USC 25 with mere seconds left. The Trojans kneeled on the next play and the game was over. Because of the offensive system Hogan plays in -- one that puts a premium on running the ball and avoiding mistakes -- it's impossible to judge him based on stats. He's a good prospect, however, one whom CBS Sports' Rob Rang compared to Philip Rivers prior to the season.
Sep 6 - 6:54 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan compares to Philip Rivers in his ability to overcome a quirky delivery with his "instincts, accuracy and velocity," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Rang is as high on Hogan as anyone, ranking him as the No. 10 overall prospect heading into the season. "Hogan has good accuracy to all levels with especially impressive touch on deep passes when he has the room to step into his throw," he wrote. "Hogan has been well protected by the elite talent blocking in front of him but when pressure does force him off his spot, he is willing to step up in the pocket, exhibiting poise, toughness and quick decision-making to either throw or run. Like Luck before him, Hogan is faster (and stronger) than he looks, making him a formidable threat on the run. Stanford's scheme calls for lots of play-action, boots and throwing on the move and deep shots -- staples of a pro-style offense that suit Hogan's athleticism and strong arm well." Stanford's conservative, run-based offensive scheme has limited Hogan to 3,726 yards and 29 touchdowns against 13 interceptions in 20 career starts, but he should be in line for more in 2014.

Stanford redshirt junior QB Kevin Hogan "has a long windup on his release and needs to clean up some things mechanically," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

The venerable analyst graded Hogan tied for fifth in his rankings of underclassmen quarterbacks, writing that the Cardinal star "should take a step forward this season with another good O-line and several outstanding weapons in the passing game." Kiper isn't as high on Hogan as some -- CBS' Rob Rang ranks him as the No. 10 overall prospect -- but perceives the upside nonetheless. "[Hogan is] a very good athlete and should continue to improve," Kiper wrote.
