Wisconsin's Alvarez Urges Class and Dignity Against Penn State

By  | 

Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez is urging fans to show "class and dignity" on Saturday when the 15th-ranked Badgers host No. 20 Penn State.

Alvarez says the school is hanging a large blue ribbon on the UW
Field House near Camp Randall Stadium to encourage awareness of the "serious issue of child abuse."

Dean of students Lori Berquam said the "allegations of horrific
conduct" surrounding the Penn State program are a reason to "show
Penn State our best, both on and off the field of play." Penn
State is reeling after accusations that former coach Jerry Sandusky
molested boys for years.

Earlier this season, Alvarez and Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema
tried to discourage fans from yelling obscenity-laced cheers.
