Watch Levi Lewis break Jake Delhomme's Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns football passing TD record
Lewis set the school record for career touchdown passes with a 3-yard strike to Jalen Williams late in the third quarter at Cajun Field. Lewis' 65th career touchdown pass broke a record previously set by former Louisiana quarterback Jake Delhomme, who played for the Ragin' Cajuns from 1993-96 before an 11-year career in the NFL.
Lewis' record-breaking connection with Williams gave Louisiana a 26-0 lead with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter. On third and goal, the Baton Rouge native appeared to have a clear running path for the score but opted to throw the ball to Williams after spotting the wide receiver standing relatively unguarded in the end zone.

After the score, Louisiana head coach Billy Napier opted for the two-point conversion, and Lewis completed a pass to Peter LeBlanc in the end zone to stretch the Ragin' Cajuns' lead to 28-0.
