BTN.com senior writer Tom Dienhart recently sat down with Jim Weber, of LostLettermen.com, for a podcast to discuss the 2013 Big Ten football season. Find a link to the full podcast here.

Among the topics, Dienhart provided his thoughts on 2013 breakout candidates, who will meet in the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game, why Nebraska is the Legends Division favorite, and whether Braxton Miller can win the Heisman Trophy.

Here’s what Dienhart said about breakout candidates:

“You know, I think one of the two running backs at Illinois: Josh Ferguson and Donovonn Young. I think that new offense of Bill Cubit could have a big year. He’s changed the blocking scheme and the running style up over in Champaign. So I think one of those two guys can sort of build on the Illinois running back tradition that really has been pretty decent in the last 5-10 years or so. So, I think those are a couple of guys to watch.”
