Two reports, one in the Wisconsin State Journal out of Madison, say that Utah State football coach Gary Andersen will be chosen to replace Bret Bielema as the next head football coach at the University of Wisconsin.

Andersen has coached Utah State for 4 seasons, leading them to 11 wins in 2012. Andersen's Aggies almost beat Wisconsin in a game at Camp Randall Stadium in September, missing a field goal to give the Badgers a 16-14 win.

Andersen would replace Bret Bielema, who left earlier this month to take the head coaching position at Arkansas. Wisconsin Athletics Director Barry Alvarez is stepping back to sidelines to coach the Badgers in the Rose Bowl January 1st.
