FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Deshaun Watson is on schedule to have his communications degree in hand by this time next year, after his junior season.

The dual-threat Clemson quarterback also hopes to take care of some unfinished business by then and have a national championship trophy to go with it.

On Monday night, Watson accepted the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's top quarterback. He was the first player in FBS history with more than 4,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing in the same season. But the Tigers finished 14-1 after a 45-40 loss to Alabama in the College Football Playoff championship game.

Watson says their goal is to finish it out and go 15-0 next season.

He says he won't decide until after next season if he will leave early for the NFL.
