Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Back on track ... in a big way.

Sam Houston State ended a two-game losing streak by routing Texas Southern, 50-6, Thursday night at BBVA Compass Stadium..

Quarterback Brian Bell threw for 209 yards and three touchdowns, including two to Texas A&M transfer Chance Nelson.

"It's good to get a win," SHSU coach Willie Fritz said after his team evened its record at 2-2.

"We got a lot of guys on this team not used to losing, particularly two games in a row. We looked pretty sharp early and got a couple of quick scores. We had to chance to get a lot of reps for the ones and twos and also the opportunity for the backups to play."
