Stanford K Jordan Williamson (leg) questionable for UCLA

By Chip Patterson | College Football/Basketball Writer

Pac-12 title hopes are on the line Saturday when the Stanford hosts No. 9 UCLA in a game that will play a role in both division races. Unfortunately, the Cardinal may enter the game without redshirt junior kicker Jordan Williamson because of a leg injury.

David Shaw said Wednesday that Williamson, a three-year starter, "tweaked" one of his legs. Stanford does not often delve into specifics regarding injuries, so no details regarding which leg or the extent of the injury were given.

Redshirt freshman Conrad Ukropina is Williamson's listed backup, and he is expected to start if Williamson cannot play. Ukropina's only action this season was an extra-point attempt, which he converted.

Williamson has hit 9 of his 12 field goal attempts this season and 25 of 26 extra points. In 2012, he had game-winning kicks against Oregon in Eugene and UCLA in the Pac-12 title game to send Stanford to the Rose Bowl.

UCLA has much more on the line in this regular season meeting than they did a year ago, facing the Cardinal with the Pac-12 South title in their grasp heading into the regular season finale. The Bruins face a brutal schedule down the stretch of the season, traveling to Oregon next week and hosting Washington before division foe Arizona State.

Keep an eye on Williamson's status in the next few days, because this game, which has a point spread of less than a touchdown, could come down to field goals on Saturday afternoon.
