Hogan was born in McLean, Virginia, the son of Jerry and Donna Hogan. He has an older brother, Brian, and a younger sister, Kelly. His grandfather played football at Navy, while his uncles played football at Notre Dame. Hogan attended Gonzaga College High School in Washington, DC where he was a two-time first team All-Washington Catholic Athletic Conference selection. As a senior, he earned D.C. Player of the Year honors and was a 2010 Washington Post First Team All-Met selection. He was also named the 2010 Outstanding High School Player of the Year for private schools by the Fairfax County Football Hall of Fame.
Hogan saw extended play for the first time in his college career on November 3, 2012, when the Stanford Cardinal played the Colorado Buffaloes at Colorado. Hogan replaced Josh Nunes after the first two possessions and went 18-for-23 for 183 yards, throwing for two touchdowns and no interceptions, and racked up 48 rushing yards. Following the game, Hogan was named the starting quarterback for the Cardinal, replacing Nunes. After becoming Stanford's starting quarterback, Hogan led the Cardinal to three straight regular season victories against ranked opponents: against No. 13 Oregon State, No. 2 Oregon, and No. 17 UCLA. When No. 17 UCLA and Stanford met in the 2012 Pac-12 Championship six days after their regular season meeting, Hogan led the Cardinal to a 27–24 victory, earning Most Valuable Player honors and sending the team to the Rose Bowl for the first time since 1999. At the Rose Bowl, Hogan led the Cardinal to a 20-14 victory against Wisconsin, ending the season with a 5-0 record.
