This Saturday’s game against Louisville could be the last game of Will Levi’s career as a Kentucky quarterback.
Levis fought through thick and thin of the turbulent 2022 season and did his best to keep the Wildcats afloat through his leadership on and off the field.
After moving from Penn State to Lexington after the 2020 season, Levis quickly took Big Blue Nation by storm, winning a three-man race for the 2021 preseason starting job and immediately showing his potential as one of the top QBs the Blues wear white in recent memory.
He led the Cats to a 10-win season a year ago, throwing for 2,593 yards, 23 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while also rushing for 387 yards and nine points, capping it off in a 20-17 win over Iowa to win the Citrus Bowl.
Levis then announced his return for another run in the UK the following off-season, starting the hype for what was target another historic season in bluegrass.
A 6-5 record shows what was a somewhat disappointing 2022 campaign going into the last week of the season, but Levis’ NFL draft stash remains higher than ever as he is expected to have a high-end pick in late April selection for the first round will be.
Now Levis has just one regular-season game left in his career in Kentucky, his second taster of the Governor’s Cup against the Louisville Cardinals, which will be played this Saturday at Kroger Field.

The Wildcats, of course, achieved bowl eligibility, but when asked if he would like to play postseason game in late December, Levis made no commitment:
“I don’t know, it’s something I haven’t even thought about. I want to get through the season and then sit down with my family, talk to Coach Stoops and all that about it… I know people are wondering about that, but I really have no idea, I wasn’t paying too much attention.”
Bowl participants will be announced on December 4th, the day after the conference championships are decided. It’s unknown when an official decision on whether or not Levis will play in the postseason game is expected
Kick-off between the Cats and Cards is scheduled for this Saturday at 3:00 p.m. EST. The game will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
