5. The Epic QB Battle
We kick off our list with what some consider to be the best battle of quarterbacks in the history of College Football.
In 2016, the Watson-led Clemson Tigers played host to the Louisville Cardinals in a game that had huge CFB Playoff implications. Though Lamar Jackson ended up winning the Heisman Trophy that season, it was Watson who came away with the win in the match-up.
He made clutch play after clutch play and ended the night throwing for 306 yards and five touchdowns.
Though it may not have been the most impressive game statistically in his career, it was certainly a perfect moment to realize just how special Watson truly was.
