The University of Wisconsin announced Thursday that former coach and current athletic director Barry Alvarez will coach the Badgers bowl game as former coach Gary Andersen left the school on Wednesday to be the head coach of Oregon State. Per ESPN:

Alvarez, the winningest coach in Badgers history (118-74-4), will coach Wisconsin against Auburn in the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day.

He said Thursday that a number of seniors asked him to consider coaching the team during the bowl game.

It's not the first time Alvarez will coach against the Tigers, as he finished out his full-time coaching career with a 24-10 victory against Auburn in the 2006 Capital One Bowl.

Alvarez also returned to the sideline to coach the Badgers in the 2013 Rose Bowl after former coach Bret Bielema announced that he was leaving to coach at Arkansas.
