Prior to the 2012 season, Lewis-Moore was named one of Notre Dame's four captains. "He called my name last and I wasn’t really expecting it because we have a lot of guys on the team that are worthy of being captains," Lewis-Moore recalled. "To hear my name was really something special. I got a little teary eyed. I knew this season was going to be special but to be captain is just something I can’t really explain. It’s speechless."[9] He started all 13 games for the Irish, but tore his ACL in his right knee in the first half of the 2013 BCS National Championship Game against Alabama.[10] He finished his season with 40 tackles, including eight and a half for loss and six sacks, while forcing two fumbles.[11]
