Deshaun Watson Played The Entire Game On A Torn ACL Saturday

Clemson's Deshaun Watson played well during the Tigers' 35-17 win over South Carolina today. He completed 73.6 percent of his passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns, and ran the ball five times for 13 yards and another two touchdowns.

Watson's performance was especially impressive because he played despite tearing his ACL during practice nine days ago, according to Tigers coach Dabo Swinney.

Swinney told reporters after the game that Watson wore a brace today, which acted as his ACL. Watson will be able to play in the Tigers' bowl game and can put off surgery until the end of the season.

Swinney also said that Watson dealt with the pain today, and while he left the game several times, it wasn't because of any pain in his knee.

Clemson finished the regular season with a 9-3 record and a 6-2 mark in the ACC. It remains to be seen which bowl the Tigers will participate in, but we do know that Watson will play in the game, barring something unforeseen.
