Louisiana football senior quarterback Levi Lewis says he will be back for a fifth season, an extra year granted by the NCAA to all players as a COVID relief.

The decision would essentially allow Lewis to be the program's greatest statistical passer.

Lewis already owns a wealth of passing records, most set last fall during his 3,000-yard season. Lewis owns the program's single season passing record (3,050) and the single season passing touchdown record (26). Averaging about 15 yards more per game this year, Lewis could actually break that record with one fewer game played. With 10 touchdowns this season, the touchdown record is a little further from reach, though a strong finish could change that.

Lewis sits fourth on Louisiana's all-time passing lists (5,640) with a chance to surpass Jerry Babb for third still this year. An extra season would give him an excellent shot to be the program's all-time leading passer, currently occupied by Jake Delhomme. Lewis is currently third (45) in all-time passing touchdowns.
