Remembering The Journey With College Football Playoffs!
Tiger Pregame Show Promotional Video Vs. Alabama In Tampa, Florida https://youtu.be/jDqbY7iNclA
The lead changed hands three times in the fourth quarter, but Watson got the ball last. Playing in his final college game, the junior quarterback threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns. In two games against Alabama and the most ferocious defense in college football, Watson has thrown for 825 yards and accounted for eight touchdowns.
Watson was sacked four times and took some cringe-inducing shots from All-Americans Jonathan Allen and Reuben Foster, but stood tall and delivered with the game on the line.
Dabo Swinney, the native Alabaman and former Crimson Tide walk-on receiver, has built an elite program at Clemson that was missing only one thing. Now the Tigers can check that box, too.
Watson found Mike Williams for a 4-yard touchdown a minute into the fourth quarter to make it 24-21 Alabama.
Stay tuned for Part III tomorrow.
