Pac-12 Postgame: Kevin Hogan

Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan, who was named the 2012 Pac-12 Championship Player of the Game, addresses the media after the win...

Q. Can you talk about the touchdown pass and what you saw and how that play sort of unfolded?

Kevin Hogan: We were sending vertical, sending all the receivers vertical. I think it was 3rd and 15 and I just saw the corner kind of sit a little bit, and Drew [Terrell] snuck behind him and got into the back of the end zone and make a great catch.

Q. As a freshman quarterback, what does it mean to you to reach the Rose Bowl? That's got to be quite an accomplishment.

Hogan: Oh, yeah. It has been a good month. We've been playing well. You know, especially for me, just being able to play, it's been fun. The guys around me make it a lost easier than it looks. I'm very fortunate to have such great teammates around me.

Q. Stanford entered the fourth quarter down by a touchdown. Can you describe what your emotions were like in the huddle? Were you as calm?

Hogan: Um, yeah. We kind of looked across the field and they were riled up. We knew that we just had to stay calm and play our style of football. We kept to it. We pounded the ball, got good field position, and we ended up scoring the tie and Jordan made a great kick to win the game.

Hogan went 16-22 with no interceptions and a touchdown. He also had seven carries for 59 rushing yards and a touchdown. After his performance, Hogan was named the 2012 Pac-12 Championship Player of the Game.
