The model knows Houston has a dynamic one-two punch through the air. Clayton Tune has amassed 3,263 passing yards with 28 touchdowns. His top target is sophomore wideout Nathaniel "Tank" Dell. He's caught 80 passes for 1,179 yards. Dell is tied for fifth in the country with 12 receiving touchdowns.
