BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Stanford quarterback Josh Nunes may get more heat this weekend from a redshirt freshman pushing for his job than from one of the worst defenses in the nation.
Nunes will be constantly looking over his shoulder against Colorado, just to see if Kevin Hogan is trotting onto the field to take his place. Nunes has struggled at times this year in his bid to replace Andrew Luck. So much so that Cardinal coach David Shaw plans to work in Hogan under center more than he has all season.
Nothing all that drastic is in the works - not yet anyway. Shaw simply wants to send in Hogan for 12 to 20 plays to see if he can ignite the sputtering offense of No. 15 Stanford (6-2, 4-1 Pac-12).
