Nittany Nation knows all about the expectations placed on Christian Hackenberg this season.

But his backfield will provide him a lot of support.

The Nittany Lions have both Zack Zwinak and Bill Belton returning.

Both guys are on preseason watch lists for the Doak Award, which is the nation's top running back.

The coaching staff is especially looking to senior Belton to be a big factor this year.

He finished with over a thousand all purpose yards and five touchdowns in 2013.

Offensive Coordinator John Donovan expects not only production, but a lot of leadership out of Belton in 2014.
