Stanford vs. Colorado: Cardinal will use more Kevin Hogan against Buffs

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

The Stanford Cardinal will experiment with playing both Josh Nunes and Kevin Hogan against the Colorado Buffaloes.

The Stanford Cardinal will try and experiment with using more of Kevin Hogan this week when they take on the Colorado Buffaloes. Antonio Gonzalez of the Associated Press files this report that has the redshirt freshman playing about 12 to 20 downs in Saturday's game.

Stanford has stuck with Josh Nunes as their starter, but he has been inconsistent, and so has the Cardinal offense. It's unclear whether Hogan will be used in special situations or will simply play for several drives during the game. There's also the possibility he might just play later on when the Cardinal have the game well in hand, which could happen against the struggling Buffs.

Colorado makes perfect sense for experimentation. The Buffaloes are one of the worst teams in the Pac-12 and have been outscored by an average of over 40 points per game in their past four losses to UCLA, Arizona State, USC and Oregon. The Cardinal are heavy favorites and aren't expected to be seriously threatened.
