Dabo Swinney: QB Deshaun Watson could play against South Carolina
Senior Cole Stoudt replaced Watson in the loss to the Yellow Jackets and completed 19 of his 29 pass attempts for 132 yards with a touchdown and an interception in the win over the Panthers.
"I thought he was better today than he was yesterday," Swinney said. "It's just like I have been saying it gets better each day. I know he was more confident today than he was yesterday. Tomorrow is another important day for us from a preparation standpoint. I think he has a good chance. How much or when? We haven't decided that yet. But I think he definitely has a chance to play."
Watson has thrown for 1,197 yards with 12 touchdowns and two interceptions this season. He was rated the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2014 by Rivals.com.
Clemson (8-3, 6-2 ACC) is ranked 21st in the latest edition of the College Football Playoff rankings. The Tigers have lost five consecutive games against South Carolina (6-5, 3-5 SEC).
