Coleman 4 TD catches, No. 4 Baylor beats off FCS Lamar 66-31

Corey Coleman had a Baylor-record four touchdown catches, and the fourth-ranked Bears had 785 total yards in a 66-31 victory over FCS team Lamar in their home opener Saturday night.

Seth Russell completed 23 of 34 passes for 342 yards with the four scores. Coleman had six catches for 182 yards.

Shock Linwood added 130 yards rushing and three TDs to help Baylor (2-0) win its 17th consecutive home game, matching second-ranked Alabama for the longest current streak.

Russell threw an interception on a play when there appeared to be a miscommunication with Coleman, setting up Lamar (1-1) at the Baylor 19.

Lamar's Joe Minden then scored on a 1-yard keeper to tie it at 21 with 4:34 left in the first half.

Less than a minute later, Russell hit Coleman in stride for a 61-yard TD. Coleman's 34-yard catch on the opening series after halftime made it 42-21.
