STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford senior Kevin Hogan is among 32 of the top quarterbacks in the nation on the Manning Award Watch List, the Allstate Sugar Bowl announced today.
The Manning Award was created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl in honor of the college football accomplishments of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning. It is the only quarterback award that includes the candidates’ bowl performances in its balloting.
Hogan was previously named to the Maxwell Award watch list as national player of the year, the Davey O’Brien watch list as top quarterback and the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award watch list.
A multi-faceted quarterback, Hogan is 16-3 as a starter and 10-1 against nationally-ranked opponents.
He ran for the third-highest single season yardage by a Stanford quarterback last season (355 yards). Through the air Hogan attempted just 295 passes, but completed 180 of them (61 pct.) en route to 2,630 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Hogan, who hails from McLean, Va., and attended Gonzaga College High School (D.C.), is majoring in science, technology and society.
Stanford’s season opens Aug. 30 with a 1 p.m. (PT) home game against UC Davis on Pac-12 Networks. The Cardinal plays its first three games at home with USC visiting Sept. 6 (12:30 p.m., ABC) and Army visiting Sept. 13 (2 p.m., Pac-12 Networks).
Stanford is approaching another season ticket sellout although a selection of seats still remain. Single-game tickets are also on sale with predictable dynamic pricing in place for the USC game. Ticket prices are at the floor for the matchup with the Trojans and are currently cheaper than the secondary market with better seat locations.
