Madison, WI - Former Wisconsin head coach Barry Alvarez will be making another temporary return to the sideline, announcing Thursday that he will lead the Badgers for the upcoming Outback Bowl following Gary Andersens departure from the program. Andersen left Wisconsin on Wednesday to take the vacant head coaching position at Oregon State, the second time in three years the Badgers have had their head coach resign prior to their bowl game. Alvarez, the winningest coach in Wisconsin football history and now the schools athletic director, also coached the team in the 2013 Rose Bowl after Bret Bielemas stunning departure for Arkansas. A number of the seniors met with me on Wednesday after our team meeting and asked if I would consider coaching the team. I told them I would have to sleep on it, said Alvarez on Thursday. After thinking it over and meeting with some of the seniors again this morning I have decided to coach. My goal is to make sure our players, especially the seniors playing their last game, have a memorable experience and we do everything we can to prepare to win the game. Alvarez retired as Wisconsins head coach following the 2005 season, which ended in a 24-10 Badgers victory over Auburn in the Capital One Bowl. Ironically, Wisconsin will be facing Auburn once again in this seasons Outback Bowl, which will take place New Years Day in Tampa. Including the Badgers loss to Stanford in the 2013 Rose Bowl, Alvarez compiled a 118-74-4 record over 16 seasons at Wisconsin from 1990-2005 and directed the Badgers to three Big Ten titles (1993, 1998, 1999). Alvarez was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2010. Puma Fenty Creepers Velvet . The 25-year-old native of Milford, Conn., has 18 points in 41 games this season.

"The future is bright," said teammate Desiree Scott. "Kadeisha Buchanan, 18-year-old, going toe-to-toe with some of the best strikers in the world and she scores a goal tonight. Unbelievable performance." Buchanan said it was a great experience to score but her work on defence was also key to keeping the Americans in check. "Defence wins games and we tried," she said of the physical way she challenged and often beat U.S. strikers such as veteran Abby Wambach as they rushed the Canadian goal. "Thats part of my element." Coach John Herdman said Canadas young back line did a great job and Buchanan has what it takes to be the best in the world at her position. "Shes the (Christine) Sinclair of defenders, shes that good" he said, referring to Canadas top forward. Buchanan scored her goal with a header off a corner kick just before the 35-minute mark of the friendly, and for 40 minutes it looked like Canada might finally beat a team they last defeated in 2001. The 18-year-old Toronto native only made her debut with the national team in January 2013 but has seen 12 starts with Lauren Sesselmann out with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Herdman said it was disappointing to come so close and not get the win but he liked what he saw of the Canadian teams development as they prepare for the 2015 Womens World Cup. American striker Sydney Leroux, who was born in Surrey, B.C., tied the game just before the 78-minute mark when she kicked Canadian defender Rebecca Quinns crossing header into the corner past goalkeeper Erin McLeod. It was the third consecutive game against Canada in which shes scored a goal. "She loves big momments and shes come through and shes been fantastic," said interim U.ddddddddddddS. coach Jill Ellis. McLeod had to make one big save early in the game off Heather OReilly and another in the second half off a header by Wambach. Then the Canadian team had to block a free kick just past the 84-minute mark that could have put the Americans in the lead. American keeper Hope Solo had her bid to tie the U.S. shutout record foiled by Buchanan. The day before the game, Herdman said the crowd could play a role. "Were not going to have 700 shots and 700 crosses, so the fans have got to be ready to really get behind us when we need (them)," he said. The crowd of 28,255 didnt disappoint. The game was also blessed with cool but dry weather, after a forecast that threatened rain, and it was the second largest crowd ever to watch a womens friendly in Canada. "You could feel the energy," said Herdman, who suggested it was a taste of what Canada will offer when it hosts the Womens World Cup next summer. Solo, who also played for the U.S. in the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, is just one away from tying Briana Scurry for the most shutouts in the American programs history at 70. Melissa Tancredi, who rejoined the Canadian team for the first time since she returned to school a couple of years ago to finish her chiropractic studies, got some playing time late in the second half. The Winnipeg-born Scott said she was thrilled to play for the first time in front of friends and family as a member of the national team. This is her sixth year on Canadas squad. "It was exhilarating and exciting for me and it definitely drove me to give a great performance tonight," she said. Buchanan, meanwhile, is also a member of Canadas under-20 World Cup team. The under-20 World Cup starts Aug. 5 with games set to take place in Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal and Moncton.
