4. Donnel Pumphrey RB SDSU
San Diego State had a bye in Week 4, but don't expect that to slow down Pumphrey's momentum. The senior RB rushed for 281 and 220 yards in his last two games, and he'll be looking for more against South Alabama on Saturday.

5. Greg Ward Jr. QB HOU
Ward shoulder issues don't seem too concerning, as the senior posted his highest completion percentage of the season so far (76.9 percent).
