Kevin Hogan threw for 254 yards and three touchdowns in his first collegiate start, and Stanford overcame four turnovers to rally past Oregon State at home and stay in control of its Pac-12 title hopes.
Cody Vaz fumbled late in the fourth quarter to give the Cardinal (8-2, 6-1) the ball at the Beavers’ 29. The only Oregon State (7-2, 5-2) turnover turned out to be the difference.
Hogan hit tight end Zach Ertz for a 13-yard touchdown for the go-ahead score, and Stanford stopped the Beavers twice more. The Cardinal will head to second-ranked Oregon next week with a chance to take over sole control of the North Division and move closer to a spot in the conference championship game.
Vaz finished 23-of-38 passing for 226 yards and a touchdown and Storm Woods ran for 94 yards in a deflating loss for Oregon State.
