The winner of the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s top quarterback is set to return to Clemson in 2016 and is focused on leading the Tigers back to the playoffs and finishing the job of winning the national championship.

“That was our goal -- we wanted to be legendary. There had never been a 15-0 team,” Watson said in an ESPN.com story. “We wanted to set a new standard. We were just a couple of plays away from [that] against, probably, they say, one of the best teams Alabama has ever had.”

According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Clemson is currently listed with 15/2 odds to win the national championship next season. Clemson joins Oklahoma with 15/2 odds. The only team with shorter odds is Alabama, which is listed at 5/1 to win.

Watson is coming off an amazing sophomore season where he threw for 4,104 yards and 35 touchdowns while rushing for 1,105 yards and 12 more scores. He was a Heisman finalist and led Clemson to a 14-1 record, with the lone loss coming against Alabama in the title game in which he threw for 405 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 73 yards. He is currently a 3/1 favorite to win the 2016 Heisman Trophy.
