WACO, Texas -- Baylor has touted itself as the nations top offense for the past three years, and with good reason.The Bears have led the country in scoring and yards per game over that span, so it was strange for the home fans to see them sputter in the first half, without a touchdown while locked in a low-scoring tie with SMU.No. 23 Baylor finally reached the end zone with its opening march of the second half, igniting a 20-point third quarter on the way a 40-13 rout of the Mustangs on Saturday.Seth Russell threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score following the 6-6 halftime tie, and the Bears went on to a 13th straight victory over their former Southwest Conference rival.Give it to SMU, Russell said. They were flying around on defense. They were giving us things we hadnt really seen them do, and they have some really good players on their team. Theyre going to do a great job in their conference. Theyre going to be a tough team to beat.Baylor missed on several deep shots in the first half, but Blake Lynch capped its opening march after halftime by breaking free in the right seam for a 31-yard touchdown reception from Russell, who added a 19-yard scoring burst on a scramble on the Bears next possession. Russell was 26 of 47 with two interceptions.Orion Stewart intercepted two passes for Baylor.

On the opening drive of the second half, he lost his defender on a hitch-and-go for an easy 31-yard score.Russell finished 26 of 47 with two interceptions.Hicks threw for 144 of his 229 yards in the first quarter, and connected with Courtland Sutton for SMUs only touchdown, a 20-yarder, in the third quarter.I felt like our guys deserved to be in that moment, SMU coach Chad Morris said.
