Even though Kevin Hogan grew up the son of a lobbyist and attended high school six blocks from the Capitol building, nobody had to do any politicking for him to be Stanford’s starting quarterback.

Stanford won a school-record seven games last March en route to an NIT championship. The Cardinal is aiming to repeat the feat this year, but in the NCAA Tournament.
Stanford is suffering through the school’s longest NCAA Tournament drought since Mike Montgomery took over the program prior to the 1986-87 season. But with one of the strongest backcourts in the Pac-12 Conference, the Cardinal is poised to make a triumphant return to March Madness. Read More

There will be no quarterback change at Stanford this week. And if David Shaw had his way, there will be no questions about the quarterback’s job status either.

Andrew Luck and Jim Harbaugh may have moved on to the NFL, but second-year coach David Shaw and No. 9 Stanford haven’t skipped a beat.
For the first time since 1970-72, the Cardinal improved to 3-0 for the third straight season with their fourth consecutive victory over then-No. 3 USC on Sept. 15, holding the Trojans to only 26 yards rushing and intercepting Heisman Trophy hopeful quarterback Matt Barkley twice in a thrilling 21-14 victory.

Oct. 13, 2011 was a night to forget for Cal quarterback Zach Maynard. He threw three interceptions and fumbled once en route to a 30-9 loss against Southern Cal.
But Maynard will get a chance for a do-over when the Bears (1-2) square off against the No. 13 Trojans (2-1) at the Los Angeles Coliseum on Saturday at 3 p.m. Read More
It’s difficult to determine whether Cal should be encouraged or discouraged by its 35-28 loss to No. 12 Ohio State on Saturday.
