When Wisconsin took care of Nebraska 70-31 in the Big Ten title game December 1st, little did we know what the 2013 Rose Bowl would like for the Badgers.  Three days after punching a third straight ticket to Pasadena, Wisconsin found themselves without a coach as Bret Bielema bolted Madison for Arkansas.  With no coach to lead the program, the King of the Rose Bowl, Barry Alvarez, stepped up to the plate and will lead the Badgers against #6 Stanford today in the 99th edition of the Rose Bowl.

Alverez led Wisconsin to Rose Bowl victories in 1994, 1999, and 2000 during his 16-years as Head Coach of the Badgers.  It has been 7-years since Alvarez last coached a game for Wisconsin, a 24-10 victory over Auburn in the Capital One Bowl.  In the 11-bowls Barry coached the Badgers, Wisconsin was 8-3 with a 3-0 mark in the Rose Bowl.  Alvarez doesn’t believe a lot has changed since he last put on the head set…
