Barry Alvarez has been through this before. The Wisconsin athletic director coached the Badgers for 16 seasons, handing off to Bret Bielema after the 2005 campaign.

Do the Badgers have better odds of beating No. 6 Stanford with Alvarez, who won three Rose Bowls during his tenure, than they would have with Bielema, who was winless in Pasadena?
