As a senior, he rushed for 1,279 yards, a school record at the time, and earned Pac-10 Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors. Lewis was also lauded with the inaugural Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top junior or senior running back, and finished seventh in the Heisman Trophy voting, the highest finish ever for a Husky offensive player.
