Lots of the names are the same around the Big Ten.
When it comes to quarterbacks, Nebraska's Taylor Martinez and Illinois' Nathan Scheelhaase are going into their fourth seasons as starters, Ohio State's Braxton Miller is entering his third and Northwestern's Kain Colter is heading into year three as a full- or part-time starter.
Eight teams return at least 16 starters. But Indiana, Wisconsin and Penn State are yet to name starting quarterbacks.
There are newcomers at other positions who could become well-known names by season's end.
