Seattle, WA (SportsNetwork.com) – Quarterback Kevin Hogan overcame two second-
half turnovers to rush for the winning 5-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter,
lifting No. 16 Stanford to a 20-13 win over Washington.
Hogan had a 17-yard touchdown pass to Ty Montgomery in the first half, but
threw an interception in the third quarter and fumbled in the red zone in the
fourth before scrambling for the go-ahead score with 4:29 remaining after the
Cardinal defense stuffed a fake punt attempt by Washington.
Stanford (3-1, 1-1 Pac-12) and its top-ranked defense has held all four of its
opponents under 14 points this season, but many of the big plays on that side
of the ball Saturday came from Washington (4-1, 0-1).
Huskies linebacker Shaq Thompson scored on a fumble return to tie the score at
13-13 going into halftime and forced a fumble when he hit Hogan in the fourth
quarter with Stanford threatening to take the lead.
But Thompson was also the player who was stopped when Washington tried a fake
punt on 4th-and-9 near midfield, leading to the Cardinal’s winning score.
