Indiana (4-1)
The Nos. 1 and 2 teams on the NCAA's sack leaderboard come from the Big Ten, but they aren't traditional defensive powerhouses like Ohio State, Michigan or Wisconsin. Indiana (with 27) and Michigan State (23) are tops in the country through five weeks, with the Hoosiers surging into the lead after sacking Iowa nine times in a 38-20 win on Saturday. Sophomore defensive end Greg Middleton, who had 2.5 sacks against the Hawkeyes, is now second in the nation with 7.5. He's still two behind South Florida's menace, George Selvie ... but four of Selvie's came against Elon.

UCF (3-1)
While the Golden Knights' neighbors to the Northwest -- the recently upset Gators of Gainesville -- operate a high-powered offense that's able to thrive with little-to-no production from its tailback, UCF takes the opposite route. Its junior star and offensive horse, Kevin Smith, leads the nation in rushing at 178.3 yards per game. Smith is also the only player in the country with double-digit rushing touchdowns, at 10.

Tavious Polo's reign over the NCAA interception leaderboard continues. The redshirt freshman recorded his seventh pick of the season on Saturday against Kentucky, giving him three more than any other player in the country. Polo's latest came against his most legitimate foe: Wildcats quarterback Andre Woodson, the owner of the NCAA's best touchdown-to-INT ratio -- sixteen touchdown passes against just one pick.
