Kentucky quarterback Will Levis wore custom cleats in the Wildcats’ season opener in which Levis threw for 367 yards and four touchdowns in a 45-10 win over Louisiana Monroe. 
He’ll wear them again for UK’s Vrbo Citrus Bowl matchup vs. Iowa but this time, they’ll have a much deeper meaning. 
Saturday vs. the Hawkeyes, Levis’ custom cleats created by True Blue Customs will bear the names of those lives lost in the tornadoes that recently devastated western Kentucky and the surrounding areas. Levis, who was also part of an autograph session that helped raise $20,000 for tornado relief, says he will auction the shoes off for charity to also aid the relief effort.

The cleats I’m wearing today honor those who lost their lives in the tornado disaster earlier this month. Thank you @truebluecustoms for the help on the inspiration and artistry on these. Will be auctioning them off for charity in the near future to aid in relief ?? pic.twitter.com/qFECGBEmm1

In his first full season as a starter, Levis completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 2,593 yards and 23 touchdowns while rushing for 387 net yards (after accounting for sacks) and nine more scores. His 2,593 passing yards are the most by a UK quarterback since Patrick Towles in 2014 and his 23 scoring strikes are the most since Mike Hartline in 2010.
Levis needs 20 total yards in the Citrus Bowl to become just the seventh player in school history to account for 3,000 total yards in a season, joining Tim Couch (twice), Jared Lorenzen (twice), Andre Woodson (twice), Mike Hartline, Dusty Bonner, and Towles.
His 32 touchdowns responsible for already rank in the top 10 on UK’s career list and tie for fourth on the single-season list.
He also got better and better as the season went along. The Kentucky offense averaged 560.8 yards per game in November, which ranked second nationally and first among Power 5 schools.
Levis has already announced he will return for his senior season. 
“My decision is to come back and play another year at Kentucky so I’m excited about that,” Levis said. “I know I have a lot more to improve on as a player as well as I think there’s a lot of great opportunities for this team in the next year. We have some developing to do and I think if we can play to our full potential with the guys coming back and the class that we’re bringing in and the transfers, it’s a recipe for success. So looking forward to having a good offseason and an even better better season next year.”
The No. 22 Wildcats (9-3) and No. 15 Hawkeyes (10-2) kick off from Camping World Stadium in Orlando Saturday at 1 PM ET on ABC.
