Stanford's Hogan is Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week


Fifth-year senior quarterback Kevin Hogan, who engineered Stanford's 41-31 upset against sixth-ranked USC on Saturday night, has been named the Pac-12 Conference Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced Monday.

Hogan, a science, technology and society major from McLean, Va., completed 18 of 23 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns and was not intercepted. He also rushed seven times for 28 yards.

Picked to the watch lists for the Walter Camp Football Foundation Player of the Year, Maxwell Award, Davey O'Brien Award, Manning Award and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, Hogan connected with nine different receivers, led the offense on scoring drives during seven possessions, and helped the Cardinal convert eight of 12 times on third down.

He is now 12-6 against opponents ranked in the AP Top 25.

Stanford head coach David Shaw has been named the Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week, as announced Monday by the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation and Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

The Dodd Coach of the Week Award honors the football coach whose program embodies the award's three pillars of scholarship, leadership and integrity, while also having success on the playing field during the previous week.

This past week, unranked Stanford went on the road to USC and took down the sixth-ranked Trojans, 41-31. The victory propelled the Cardinal to a No. 21 ranking in this week's AP Top 25.

Shaw boasts an overall record of 44-13 and 29-8 in Pac-12 Conference play.
