Watson had just two catches but made the most of them. One of the receptions was an 86-yard scoring grab on a nice out-and-up route where he outran the secondary for the touchdown. Watson also showed the ability to be a proficient blocker as he and fellow Red team tight end Anthony Talbert helped starting tailback Travis Leggett rush for a game-high 129 yards in their 31-21 win over the White team. Watson and Talbert suited up for the second-team offense and faced the second-team defense.
Junior George Bryan lined up at tight end for the White team, and the 2009 first-team All-ACC selection didn't disappoint as he totaled 55 yards and a touchdown on four receptions.
NC State's first-string offense, the White, faced the Wolfpack's first-string defense.
