The Big Ten football season kicks off in less than two weeks. Before Indiana (Indiana State) and Minnesota (UNLV) get things started Thursday, Aug. 29 on BTN/BTN2Go, it’s time to unveil my preseason All-Big Ten Offense. Who did I miss? Feel free to leave your submission in the comment section at the bottom of the post. I’ll post my defensive team later.

The topic of breakout players can be an ambiguous one. For example, some people view Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah as a 2013 breakout player. Others, meanwhile, feel that with 1,315 total yards and 10 scores a season ago, he’s well past “breakout” territory. I tend to side with the latter. Either way, I went to Twitter and asked Big Ten fans for their 2013 breakout candidates.

We’re 16 days from the 2013 football season kicking off. Indiana (Indiana State) and Minnesota (UNLV) get things started for the Big Ten on Thursday, Aug. 29 on BTN/BTN2Go. To help count down the days to kickoff, BTN.com is ranking the top 25 players. Join us as we count it down, from 25-1, every day.
It’s one of our favorite annual traditions. Every summer, after each practice on our 12-stop trek across Big Ten country, the player represented on our tour bus signs his likeness. It makes for a tremendous photo op – not to mention a really cool memento from our travels. See a photo of all the players signing their likeness and relive all of our tour coverage right here.
When it comes to traveling, Jim Delany is the best. The Big Ten commissioner hitched a ride on the BTN bus during the first three stops—Indiana, Ohio State and Penn State–of our tour of training camps.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – There was a lot to like about Ohio State today. Many NFL teams concur, as there were close to a dozen on hand at Wednesday’s practice to watch the second-ranked Buckeyes work out.
