HOUSTON - All systems are go for Sunday’s big showdown as the Houston Texans try to clinch their second straight division title as they host the Indianapolis Colts at noon on KHOU Channel 11/CBS.

However, Houston Stratford product, quarterback Andrew Luck and company stand in their way.

Luck was a standout football and basketball player for the Spartans before leaving for Stanford University. The last time Luck played in Reliant Stadium he was in high school.

Luck, who was taken No. 1 overall by Indianapolis in this year’s draft, is one of the big reasons the Colts have a surprising 9-4 record this season.

Luck has thrown for 3,792 yards this season with 18 touchdown passes and 18 interceptions He also has lost five fumbles. The Texans will look to capitalize off the rookie’s inexperience and mistakes.
