Kevin Hogan threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Ty Montgomery returned a punt for a score and Stanford's sporadic offense busted out of its slump in a 38-14 rout of Oregon State on Saturday.
The Cardinal (5-3, 3-2 Pacific 12) controlled the game from start to finish, showing more diverse looks that they have all season — just like coach David Shaw had promised after a perplexing 26-10 loss at Arizona State last week took Stanford out of The Associated Press poll for the first time in four years.
Hogan tossed two interceptions, Ben Rhyne had a punt blocked and Jordan Williamson made one of two short field goals.
Sean Mannion and the Beavers struggled to move the ball against the conference's top-ranked defense, scoring one TD after an interception and another against second-stringers with the game decided.
The All-American kickoff returner patiently waited for blocks and zig-zagged through a wall of defenders for a 50-yard punt return — his second this season — to give Stanford a 35-7 lead.
