3. Shredding South Carolina
Fast-forward 10 months from that Alabama loss and you’ll find the next moment on our list.
Though Watson and the Tigers fell to Pittsburgh just a couple of weeks earlier, they were firmly in the CFB Playoff hunt heading into the annual in-state match-up with South Carolina. And the Gamecocks were chirping.
Watson finished the night passing for 347 yards and six touchdowns to one interception, leading the Tigers to a 56-7 win. Honestly, it could’ve been 100-7 if Clemson had wanted it to be that night.
With the win, Watson fulfilled his promise that he’d never lose to South Carolina while he was the QB at Clemson.
