FROM "THE FABULOUS FORUM" — The No. 8-ranked Texas Tech Red Raider wrecking balls ruined No. 19 Kansas' homecoming Saturday with a 63-21 win in Lawrence -- and here's the kicker.

Texas Tech Coach Mike Leach, frustrated by his team's kicking woes, offered Williams a roster spot after seeing him win a between-quarters kicking contest during a home game on Sept. 20.

Williams was perfect on Saturday, and Texas Tech was nearly the same in dismantling what was thought to be a pretty good Kansas team.
