After a scoring change, Jourdan Lewis is now an all-time Michigan record-holder
Jourdan Lewis set a Michigan record on Saturday and he didn’t even know it. That’s because technically, the record wasn’t official on Saturday.
But after further review, the Wolverine cornerback is now the program’s all-time leader in pass breakups. He broke Leon Hall’s record of 43 career pass breakups.
Michigan made that news official on Wednesday morning:
We've had an official scoring change, and with it @JourdanJD is the new ALL-TIME LEADER in Pass Breakups at Michigan!

Lewis’ 44 pass breakups came thanks in large part to his junior season, in which he set the program’s single-season record. He finished 2015 with 22 pass breakups, which bested the single-season record by four.
In just eight games this season, Lewis has 10 pass breakups. On top of that Lewis, also has a tie for the Michigan single-game record for pass breakups of six, which he posted in last year’s loss against Michigan State.
Lewis can add to his record and put Michigan in the B1G Championship with a big showing in Columbus on Saturday.
