Lewerke, a redshirt freshman, will start his second consecutive game this weekend after starting his first career game last weekend against Northwestern. He was pulled from the contest against the Wildcats in favor of senior Tyler O’Conner in the second half, after an ineffective first half.
He finished the game with a statline of 12 completions out of 19 attempts, 99 yards, a touchdown and a quarterback rating of 124.3. He also ran for 33 yards on seven attempts.
