Continued: Former Utah State coach Andersen excited to coach Badgers football

After leaving for the SEC, Bielema further agitated Badgers fans by saying he wanted a better chance to win the national championship. In the past 20 years, Wisconsin has won or shared the Big Ten title six times but hasn’t finished a season ranked higher than fourth nationally.

Andersen knows his Utah State players left everything they had on Camp Randall’s field. Beginning Aug. 31, against UMass, he expects the Badgers to do the same.

“I think anywhere you go, there are expectations,” Andersen said. “Winning is very, very important, but it’s not the most important thing to me.

“I get asked a lot what I would consider a successful season or a successful tenure? That’s easy. I want the seniors to walk out of here with their heads held high. I want them to be proud of their university, and I want them to have a degree.”
