ANAHEIM, Calif. -

Wisconsin is in the Rose Bowl for the third straight year. This time, the Badgers are bringing a familiar face with them on the sideline.

Athletic director Barry Alvarez, who won three Rose Bowls during his coaching career in Madison is handling coaching duties for the 99th Rose Bowl on Jan. 1 following the departure of Bret Bielema for Arkansas.

Alvarez joined his team at Disneyland on Wednesday, along with Stanford coach David Shaw and the Cardinal players in the traditional kick off to the week's festivities leading to the historic game in Pasadena.

Alvarez said he's leaving the game plan in the hands of his offensive and defensive coordinators while he manages. Star running back Montee Ball said Alvarez brings a swagger and confidence to the team that is welcomed by the players, who have lost on their last two trips to Pasadena.
