SCOUTING STANFORD: Stanford bounced back from a season- opening road loss at Northwestern with a 31-7 home win last week over UCF. The Cardinal is guided by ninth-year head coach David Shaw, whose uncle (Nate) was an All-American cornerback and assistant coach at USC. Senior QB Kevin Hogan (37-of-64, 57.8%, 496 yds, 3 TD, 1 int in 2015) starts for his fourth season and ranks among the school’s career leaders in touchdown passes (fourth with 51), total offense (fifth with 7,930) and passing yards (fifth with 7,014). His top targets are sophomore RB Christian McCaffrey (32 tcb, 124 yds, 3.9 avg in 2015, plus 9 rec, 82 yds, 9.1 avg, 1 TD and 5 KOR, 107 yds, 21.4 avg and 3 PR, 24 yds, 8.0 avg), the team leader in rushing, receiving, punt returns and kick returns (he is 13th nationally in all-purpose running at 168.5, first in the Pac-12), as well as senior WR Devon Cajuste (6 rec, 63 yds, 10.5 avg in 2015) and junior TE Austin Hooper (6 rec, 56 yds, 9.3 avg in 2015). Senior LB Blake Martinez (22 tac, 1.5 for loss, 1 int, 4 dfl in 2015), senior LB Kevin Anderson (15 tac, 2.5 for loss in 2015) and junior LB Peter Kalambayi (15 tac, 2 for loss, 1 sack, 1 FF in 2015) lead Stanford’s defense, which is 11th nationally in pass efficiency defense (80.0, second in Pac-12), 15th in pass defense (128.0, first in Pac-12) and 18th in both total defense (255.5, first in Pac-12) and scoring defense (11.5, fifth in Pac-12).
