Deshaun Watson ties up the National Championship game with this beautiful touchdown pass

New, comment

And the scramble to set it up was pretty good too!

Things got off to bad start for Clemson, with Derek Henry bursting through for a 50 yard touchdown run to give Alabama an early 7-0 lead. But thanks to a great kickoff return, Deshaun Watson was able to lead the Tigers to a tying score, topped off with this absolutely beautiful 31 yard touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow.

The Tigers wouldn't have even had a chance to take a whack at the end zone if it wasn't for a dynamic Watson scramble on 4th 3rd down, changing directions as pressure mounted, to scramble for a six yard gain on 3rd and four. Flush with that confidence, Clemson decided to swing for the fences, and hit paydirt to the freshman.

Don't look now, but we've got a hell of a football game on our hands so far.
