"We'll have to answer the toughness bell in this week," Oregon State coach Gary Andersen said. "I think we've done a good job with that this year when we've matched up against people that want to stand up and throw some heavy, big-boy punches."
"If I just give you my own opinion of it, it's pretty simple for me: All Power 5 teams should do the exact same thing. If they don't, it's not fair. That being said, they all don't. Because it's very, very difficult when you say you're going to play nine games within your schedule and then you're going to go beat each other up. But if everybody else is beating each other up, then I think it's fine," Oregon State coach Gary Andersen said.
