will have surgery Friday on his torn ACL and miss the upcoming Russell Athletic Bowl against Oklahoma.

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.

The Clemson coaching staff hopes to have Watson able to participate in the summer skill and drill sessions.

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