MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Rookie quarterback Walter Lewis threw for five touchdowns Friday night as the Memphis Showboats swamped the San Antonio Gunslingers 38-14 before 32,406 fans at the Liberty Bowl.
Lewis performance tied a United States Football League record for touchdown passes in a single game. Birmingham's Cliff Stoudt, who tossed five touchdown passes against Memphis earlier this year, shares the record.
The former University of Alabama signal caller completed 18 of 27 passes for 221 yards. He also rushed for 51 yards before leaving the game early in the final period.
The Showboats are now 5-7.
