Clemson QB Deshaun Watson lands SI cover
Tuesday December 8th, 2015

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson is featured on the College Football Playoff preview issue of Sports Illustrated.

Watson is just a sophomore, but he has led his undefeated team to the CFP by throwing for 5,312 yards with 30 touchdowns and rushing for 887 yards with 11 touchdowns. His statistical dominance led him to be named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, which will be awarded on Saturday to the best player in college football.

In this week’s issue, SI’s Pete Thamel writes about Watson's emergence as the ACC champion's biggest weapon. Clemson faces No. 4 Oklahoma on Dec. 31 in the semifinal Orange Bowl.

Also in this issue is a special report on the $30 million of research the NFL has conducted to learn more about concussions and their effect on the brain, as well as SI’s picks for the Heisman winner.
