Over the opening weekend of college football, seven FCS schools upset FBS schools. The Badgers host Tennessee Tech of the FCS on Saturday, and Gary Andersen knows they're coming to Camp Randall to win. 

"They're always going to be able to say they played in Camp Randall. What better thing for them to say they came into Camp Randall, played well, and won?"

Andersen is no stranger of underdogs. Last year, his Utah St. Aggies came into Camp Randall and nearly shocked the Badgers. 

"Those are good coaches at that level who have hungry young men with a chip on their shoulder."

Andersen knows the key to beat a small school is to put them away early. 

"The longer they hang in games, they more excited they get about winning and believing. That's when it gets a little scary. You better make some plays to win."

The Badgers better get out in front of the Golden Eagles early. Tennessee Tech scored 63 in their week one win over Cumberland. Kickoff Saturday at Camp Randall is at 11 a.m.
