The Stanford Cardinal are in desperate need of a home win this Saturday when they face the UCLA Bruins in Palo Alto, but they may not be all the way healthy in their special teams game.

Redshirt junior kicker Jordan Williamson has been ruled as “questionable” for the game. Coach David Shaw was very direct when talking about the injury, stating that Williamson had “tweaked” one of his legs at Wednesday evening’s practice. He went on to say that their starting kicker might not be available on Saturday.

If Williamson can’t go, the Card will turn to redshirt freshman Conrad Ukropina from Pasadena, CA. Ukropina is 1-1 on an extra point attempts so at least he’s kicked in a game situation this season.

Stanford is ranked No. 13 in the nation this week coming off of a shocking loss to Utah, while the Bruins come in undefeated at No. 9.
