Watson ranked in Top 3 of ESPN's QB Rankings

ESPN analyst Brock Huard has released his Top 10 quarterback power rankings on Tuesday morning and Clemson sophomore quarterback is ranked #3 in all of college football.

Watson was 21 for 31 for 199 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions against Louisville.

He also had five scores rushing. Another superlative is that he had a nation's best 10.7 yards per pass attempt.
