Five FBS level teams have yet to trail this season.

Louisville, Miami (FL), Ohio State, Texas Tech, and Washington are the five schools. The latter two might be the biggest surprises, but the team with the best chance of winning the National Championship out of this group has to be Ohio State.

Indiana junior RB Tevin Coleman has dominated this season behind "a suspect offensive line," an NFL scout told Sports Illustrated.

"NFL scouts expect Saturday to be Coleman’s final collegiate game," the site reports. The 6-1, 210-pound junior has collected 1,906 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns on 241 carries this year. "You don’t reel off that many long runs behind a suspect offensive line like that and have the production he has," a scout said. "He should be in the Heisman conversation. He doesn’t have a lot around him." The scout believes Coleman could go in the late first round, but is more probably an early second-rounder. "The one thing with him though is is he going to be consistently able to give you the three-, four-, five-yard runs that sustain drives?" the scout said. "If he’s hitting this many long runs, there’s just not many guys like that in the league like the Chris Johnson when he first got in the league or the Reggie Bush or the LeSean McCoys. Those guys are all more elusive than him per se as far as make-miss ability, but this guy is good."

NFL Media spoke with one AFC West scout who believes Stanford senior WR Ty Montgomery looks better on paper than the play he shows on Saturdays.

"My big problem with Ty Montgomery is that he looks better on paper than he does on grass," the scout said. Montgomery is listed around 6'2, but we would not be surprised to see him measured two inches shorter. Montgomery is best with the ball in his hands, but he fails to create consistent separation in routes since he does not sustain his speed in breaks. Right now, he is a manufactured touches type player.

ESPN's Mel Kiper lists Baylor redshirt junior edge rusher Shawn Oakman as the No. 8 prospect at his position of DE.

The "DE" position does not include Vic Beasley, Alvin Dupree and Leonard Floyd, so Oakman might even be further down the edge rushing list. We are highlighting the ranking because it breaks groupthink, which is frequently a thought provoking exercise. Prospects like Michigan State's Shilique Calhoun and Utah's Nate Orchard are listed ahead of Oakman.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Alabama junior T.J. Yeldon as the No. 9 RB in the 2015 class.

We think it is worth calling attention to some of the names ranked ahead of Yeldon, as Kiper certainly is breaking group think here - which is good. At No. 6 is Jeremy Langford, Michigan St. No. 7 is Devontae Booker, Utah and No. 8 is Javorius "Buck" Allen, USC. We think Yeldon looks much better than last season, displaying decisiveness and smooth acceleration at and beyond the second level.

Nevada senior QB Cody Fajardo will attend the East West Shrine game.

Fajardo once drew some buzz at the position, but that was likely due to people trying to latch on to potential prospects and it has since tailed off. This season, he has completed 60.6 percent of his passes for 2,328 for 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, the worst numbers of his career.

Michigan State redshirt senior WR Tony Lippett will start at cornerback Saturday against Penn State.

It was also reported last week that Lippett (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) would start two-ways, but that ended up not being the case. He did appear in the game, against Rutgers, as a CB. However, the starting bit seems likely to go down this weekend, as coach Mark Dantonio has discussed the move with the media and Lippett is listed No. 1 on both the WR and CB portions of the depth charts. He will become the school's first two-way starter since 1968. This move isn't about pageantry. Instead, according to Dantonio, he hopes to aid Lippett's draft stock.

The Big Ten declared Ohio State junior DE Noah Spence permanently ineligible.

Spence failed a second drug test earlier this season, putting him in jeopardy for this ruling (The Big Ten handbook states that a student athlete who fails a second drug test "shall be declared permanently ineligible for all further intercollegiate competition in all sports."). Ohio State helped him through the appeals process, which culminated in today's ruling. "While we are disappointed in the outcome, we are pleased that Noah has come a long way and we are very proud of the progress he has made with regard to his health," Ohio State Athletics Director Gene Smith said. Spence tweeted, "Now it's time to get ready for the next level," so expect him to declare for the spring draft. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline graded Spence as a Rds. 1-2 prospect over the summer, though the defender's failed drug tests and lost season figure to knock him further down the board.

Baylor coach Art Briles said Baylor redshirt senior QB Bryce Petty is this year's Blake Bortles and the best QB in the 2015 draft.

"Obviously, I'm biased," Briles added. NFL.com's Charles Davis understands the comparison. "Petty (6-foot-3, 230) is similar in size to Bortles (6-5, 232), and he's a big, strong runner, just like Bortles," Davis wrote. "Will Petty rise up draft boards like Bortles, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 draft, did? That remains to be seen, but I do expect that the closer we get to the draft, the more NFL people are going to like what they see from Petty, especially when they get a chance to meet and work with him closely." Davis believes UCLA's Brett Hundley, Oregon's Marcus Mariota and Florida State's Jameis Winston will all be rated ahead of Petty if they declare early, but didn't dismiss the possibility of Petty shooting up draft boards during the post-season evaluation process.

Minnesota coach Jerry Kill said senior RB David Cobb is "very questionable" for Saturday's game at Wisconsin.

This is a troubling development indeed, as Kill had previously designated Cobb, injured in last week's win over Nebraska, merely "questionable." Forty-eight hours later has brought a slight downgrade to that prognosis. Cobb's loss would cripple Minnesota's run-heavy offense. He's rushed for 1,430 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. The Golden Gophers also might be without backup tailback Berkley Edwards, who suffered a concussion against Nebraska. If both Cobb and Edwards can't go, Minnesota figures to prescribe a heavy dose of QB runs for Mitch Leidner, as well as cross their fingers that RBs Donnell Kirkwood and Rodrick Williams can be effective.

Stanford senior WR Ty Montgomery has been ruled out for the upcoming game against UCLA with a shoulder injury.

Montgomery suffered the right shoulder injury against Cal. Physicality after the catch is a staple of Montgomery's game, as he wins with the ball in his hands out of the backfield or on screens. Head coach David Shaw said it is a "distinct possibility" Montgomery returns for the school's bowl game. Redshirt junior Jordan Pratt was listed as a starter in Ty's place.

Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III will not shadow FSU senior WR Rashad Greene.

Hargreaves is one of the top corners in the country, and you will be hearing all about him this summer. However, few corners actually prefer to shadow opposing receivers, especially ones that also work in the slot (like Greene). Jameis Winston has tended to lock on to Greene and Nick O'Leary this season, and expect to Florida attempt to bait Winston into interceptions with underneath coverage.
