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 will likely be without starting kicker Jordan Williamson in the contest.
Big news: Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson is not in uniform for game vs UCLA— David Lombardi (@DavidMLombardi) October 19, 2013
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.
