Clemson, S.C.--Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson was named the recipient of the Capital One Impact Performance of the Week award by ESPN on Thursday. It is the second major national player of the week award for Watson this week. On Sunday he was named National Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Foundation.

Watson accounted for six touchdowns in the win over NC State, five touchdown passes and one rushing score. It marked the third time a Clemson quarterback accounted for at least six touchdowns in a game against NC State. Woody Dantzler had four passing and two rushing in 2001 in a Clemson victory, then Tajh Boyd had eight touchdowns, five passing and three rushing, in a 2012 win over the Wolfpack.

Watson has moved into first place in the ACC and eighth in the nation in passing efficiency with a 168.3 figure this year, as he has complete a league best 70 percent of his passes for 1936 yards, and 20 touchdowns.

Watson’s passing efficiency on Saturday of 238.9 was the best in Clemson history for a single game given a minimum of 30 passes. It was also the best for any FBS quarterback this past week among quarterbacks who threw at least 30 passes.

For his career, Watson now has an efficiency rating of 176.11, second best among all active FBS quarterbacks who have played thrown at least 325 passes. He is already sixth in Clemson history in career touchdown passes with 34.
