Kevin Hogan threw four touchdown passes and drove No. 13 Stanford to the game-winning 45-yard field goal by Conrad Ukropina on the play of the Cardinal’s 38-36 victory over No. 4 Notre Dame in a playoff elimination game Saturday night.
Hogan threw for 269 yards and calmly led the winning drive in the final 30 seconds for the Cardinal (10-2, No. 9 CFP), who kept their slim playoff hopes alive with the win. Stanford needs to beat USC in the Pacific-12 Conference championship game next week and then get help in the other title games to make the four-team playoff.
