Having already gone through two kickers - who have combined to miss six PATs and half of their field-goal attempts - the sixth-ranked Red Raiders are now seriously considering giving Matt Williams a shot against No. 18 Kansas this weekend.
Williams is a Tarleton State transfer student who won a month of free rent at the Tech/UMass game several weeks ago by kicking a 30-yard field goal.

Tomlinson is pretty washed up, but he'll be playing behind the best run-blocking O-line in the league, rather than the most over-rated run blocking O-line (Vikings), so he'll look good in the twilight of his career (worked for Thomas Jones).
