STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Kevin Hogan hustled off the practice field Tuesday morning, changed out of his sweaty Stanford football jersey and headed across campus for his most important meeting: a Spanish test.
Forgive the Cardinal quarterback if he's short on words.
For the third straight season on The Farm, the year's biggest exams fall on the same week. Not only are the eighth-ranked Cardinal (11-2) finishing finals in the classroom, the Pac-12 champions are beginning preparation for the Rose Bowl against Big Ten winner Wisconsin on Jan. 1.
Stanford has experience on its side this time around. After playing in the Orange Bowl and Fiesta Bowl the past two seasons, that still doesn't make the work any easier on or off the field at the rigorous academics university.
