DALLAS (AP) Seth Russell threw for 376 yards with three of his five touchdowns to Jay Lee, and the new starting quarterback also ran for a score as fourth-ranked Baylor finally got back on the field with 56-21 victory at SMU on Friday night.

The Bears got to start fresh after the long, long offseason that followed their playoff snub despite a second consecutive Big 12 Conference title, and then blowing a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter in a Cotton Bowl loss to Michigan State.

Russell succeeded two-year starter Bryce Petty and the Bears kept rolling on offense, as has become usual under eighth-season coach Art Briles. Russell completed 15 of 30 passes and had a 4-yard TD run as Baylor had 723 total yards. They averaged 582 yards and 48 points a game last season.
