Associated Press

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Clayton Tune threw for five touchdowns, with two scores apiece from Nathaniel Dell and Sam Brown, to help Houston beat Navy 38-20.

Tune had touchdowns of 6, 11, 3, 7 and 4 yards. He was 21 of 30 for 261 yards.

Tune passed for three touchdowns in the first half to build a 21-7 lead - Houston's first halftime lead of the season. Tune connected with Dell twice in the first quarter for a 14-0 lead, and Houston was driving on its third possession before Brandon Campbell fumbled it into the end zone for a Navy touchback.

Brown, a West Virginia transfer, made his first touchdown grab for Houston to make it 31-14.

Dell had eight grabs for 93 yards and Brown had 33 yards for Houston (4-3, 2-1 American Athletic Conference).

Tai Lavatai was intercepted two times and Daba Fofana rushed for 89 yards and a score for Navy (2-5, 2-3). Daniel Davies had a field-goal attempt blocked with 46 seconds left before halftime and he was wide left early in the third quarter.
