Kevin Hogan ran for a 5-yard touchdown with 4:29 remaining, and No. 16 Stanford took advantage of a poorly timed fake punt to hold off Washington 20-13 on Saturday.

Hogan and the Cardinal (3-1, 1-1) avoided a potentially costly 0-2 start in Pac-12 play after already losing at home to Southern California.

Stanford dominated statistically, but was still tied midway through the fourth quarter because of continued problems in the red zone. That's when Washington coach Chris Petersen took a gamble running a fake punt on fourth-and-9 at its own 47. The play was stuffed and Hogan scored on the ensuing possession.
