Heisman watch: Laviska Shenault belongs in the mix

5. Colorado WR Laviska Shenault: Leads the nation with 141.6 receiving yards per game for one of the season's biggest surprises.

4. Houston DT Ed Oliver: Future top-five pick was unblockable in primetime last week against Tulsa.

3. Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray: The Red River loss hurts, but he still ranks third nationally with 11.15 yards every time he throws or runs the ball.

2. Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins: Leads the nation with 25 touchdown passes and should torch a decent Minnesota pass defense for more.

1. Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa: A sprained knee might be the only thing to slow him down.
