Watson's 4 TDs lead No. 1 Clemson to 37-32 victory

Deshaun Watson isn't giving up on Clemson's step-by-step approach, not when it's worked so well.

Watson had another big day, running for three touchdowns and passing for a fourth as the No. 1 Tigers capped a perfect regular season and held off rival South Carolina 37-32 on Saturday.

The prizes for Clemson (12-0) are huge. Watson will take them one at a time.

"We weren't worried about the national championship," Watson said. "We were just worrying about this game, achieve one of our goals and be state champs and that's what we did. The national championship will take care of itself."

Especially if Watson keeps performing at this level.
