Former Penn State QB Will Levis, No. 20 Kentucky Beat No. 12 Florida

Will Levis

Former Penn State QB Will Levis and the No. 20 Kentucky Wildcats got an upset win over SEC East foe Florida, who came in ranked No. 12, 26-16.

Levis, who played at Penn State from 2018-20, had a modest stat line, going 13-24 with 202 yards and a touchdown and an interception.

But Levis— who also ran for a touchdown despite finishing with -12 rushing yards— did enough to move the Wildcats to 2-0 overall and 1-0 in the SEC.

Before Kentucky’s game-clinching field goal, TV cameras spotted Levis looking away. But the kick went through, and Kentucky stayed unbeaten.

Levis waved to Florida’s fans after the kick, no doubt rubbing salt in Gator Nation’s proverbial wound.

Florida (1-1, 1-1 SEC) went from unranked to No. 12  following an upset win over then-No. 7 Utah in Week 1. For new head coach Billy Napier, it was a bitter loss.

Levis for playing time for Penn State in its 2019 and ‘20 seasons. He got his first college start against Rutgers in 2019’s regular-season finale, helping Penn State to a win. He also started against Iowa in 2020, a game Penn State lost. Despite current QB Sean Clifford being the team’s primary starting QB in 2020, Levis appeared in eight of Penn State’s nine games, being used often as a runner. In his last two years at Penn State, Levis rushed for a combined 473 yards, a number that wasn’t terribly behind his passing total of 644.

Kentucky’s next game is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 17, at noon.
