Houston Texans franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson will be a very interested fan in the upcoming title game featuring No. 1 LSU vs. No. 3 Clemson on January 13.

Watson is pulling for his former school, where he helped lead to the epic last-second 35-31 National Championship win in 2016.

“Oh yea for sure, I’m going with the real tigers,” Watson told reporters on Tuesday during media availability.

“I’m riding with my Tigers, and that’s what we’re going to do,” he said. “We’re going to be ready for that moment. We’ve been there multiple times. Those guys know that the opportunities don’t come every year, and they got another opportunity to be back to back and go 15-0 again. So, those guys will be ready, and it’ll be fun to watch.”

Glad that Watson picked Clemson as that would have been very awkward if he had picked LSU (-5.5).
