"When we entered the Big Ten, it was to be competitive and to be competitive at the highest level," Anderson said. "We've played some great teams. We've played Ohio State. We played Wisconsin. We'll play Michigan State. They've set the standard, at least football-wise, in this conference and that's what we aspire to be. We've seen, competing against Ohio State and Wisconsin, what it's going to take for us to get to that higher level, and we're more than capable of doing it.
