MADISON, WI (TheSpread) – The Wisconsin Badgers like what they saw out of new coach Gary Andersen in 2013, electing to give him a new deal on Monday.

The Associated Press reported late Monday night that the Badgers approved a new five-year deal for Andersen that will pay him $2.2 million in base salary with $100,000 annual raises.

Andersen took over Wisconsin’s program when Bret Bielema left Wisconsin for Arkansas in a surprising move prior to the 2013 Rose Bowl. The Badgers went 9-4 in 2013 under Andersen, who earned the job after leading Utah State to success.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Wisconsin has 33/1 odds to win the 2015 FBS Championship. Florida State is the current favorite to win the title, as the Seminoles have 4/1 odds while Alabama has been given 6/1 odds.

Wisconsin opens the 2014 season in a big way, as it takes on LSU on August 30 from Houston at a time to be announced.
