DALLAS (AP) If there was any concern about a letdown coming off a first loss that changed the course of the season for No. 23 SMU, it disappeared in another wild, high-scoring game.
Shane Buechele threw five touchdown passes, Xavier Jones broke one of Eric Dickerson's school records and the Mustangs bounced back by outscoring East Carolina 59-51 on Saturday.
SMU (9-1, 5-1 American Athletic) played from ahead and kept it that way in a second straight game with more than 1,000 combined yards. The Mustangs had fallen behind and failed to close the gap last week in a 54-48 loss to No. 19 Memphis.
