Watson in Top 2 of ESPN's Heisman Watch

Clemson junior quarterback Deshaun Watson led his team to a 56-10 dominating victory against Boston College on Friday night.

Watson is ranked the #2 Heisman candidate on ESPN's latest Heisman watch behind only Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson (49 total points). The voting is based on ten different ESPN writers and Watson received one first-place vote, six second-place votes, and two third-place votes, for 35 total points.

"After a quiet start to the season, Watson is beginning to surge in the Heisman race," ESPN said. "He unleashed another terrific performance in Friday's 56-10 win over Boston College, where he threw for 270 yards and four touchdowns, and delivered the key block that sprung teammate Wayne Gallman for a 59-yard touchdown run."

Watson completed 333 of 491 passes (67.8%) for 4,104 yards and 35 touchdowns and also had 207 rushes for 1105 yards and 12 scores last season. His 5,209 yards of total offense and his 47 total touchdowns were ACC records, and his rushing total was a record for a Clemson quarterback. For his career, he has 7142 passing yards with 67 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.

The Top five on ESPN's Heisman Watch: Lamar Jackson, Deshaun Watson, J.T. Barrett, Jake Browning, and Jabrill Peppers.
