QB Seth Russell lights it up in Baylor's first scrimmage

BY foxsports • August 17, 2015

The biggest question for Baylor going into this season is whether junior Seth Russell can maintain the Bears' recent standard of excellence at quarterback. 

Saturday was a good sign, as Russell delivered a near flawless performance in Baylor's first scrimmage of the preseason. He completed his first nine attempts, and finished 17-of-21 passing for 233 yards and three touchdowns.

"I knew he was good and I knew he was on," coach Art Briles said to ESPN. "I thought he was really calm. I thought he made some good checks at the line of scrimmage and protected the football. He's just continually gotten better the last three days. I think his confidence level is really rising."

Russell's big plays included a 77-yard touchdown pass to Corey Coleman and an 18-yard scoring strike to tight end Tre'Von Armstead.
