For the season, Watson completed 67.9% of his passes for 1,466 yards (10.7 per attempt) and 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions. His quarterback rating on the season was 188.57.

Recover time from a torn ACL injury is at a minimum of six months but usually nine months or more.

Clemson will face Oklahoma in the upcoming Russell Athletic Bowl on Dec. 29 at 5:30 PM EST.
