Wisconsin got a big win in the Outback Bowl on Thursday, beating Auburn 34-31, and athletic director Barry Alvarez -- who was acting as coach following the departure of Gary Andersen -- celebrated in style afterwards.

Clemson defensive coordinator can't stay off field

Alvarez has got to be pretty happy. The Badgers improved to 9-4 in bowl games coached by him, broke a four-game losing streak in bowl games, won without Andersen and earned back some respect after being dominated by Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game.

And on top of everything, he even got a Gatorade bath!
