Cardinal kicker Williamson questionable
By Kevin Gemmell
LOS ANGELES -- Should today's Stanford-USC game mimic last year's contest -- which the Cardinal won on a last-minute field goal -- it might not be Jordan Williamson doing the kicking.
The Stanford kicker will be a game time decision, according to a school spokesman, who did not elaborate on the injury.
On the season, Williamson is 11-of-12 on field goals. His only miss of the season came on a 47-yard attempt against Colorado.
If Williamson, who also handles kickoffs, is unable to play, Eric Whitaker will handle the kicking. Williamson did not take any kicks during pregame warmup.
Ironically, it was Whitaker's older brother Nate who hit the 30-yard field goal as time expired last year to lift the Cardinal to a 37-35 victory at Stanford Stadium.
