It’s the beginning of a new era for Clemson football. Freshman Deshaun Watson entered the game last week against Florida State in Tallahassee like he belonged on that stage. There could have been no bigger setting to take the reigns, but Watson was poised in the heartbreaking loss to the Seminoles.
The Tigers return home, and Dabo Swinney’s squad could really use a shot in the arm -- with Watson as the starter this may be all the medicine Clemson needs.
Watson getting the start and it's his job to lose at this point. The Tigers welcome a lowly North Carolina Tarheels team that was blown out last week into Death Valley.
