Doeren 5.jpgNIU head coach Dave Doeren returned to one of his old stomping grounds this past weekend when the Huskies traveled to Kansas to face the Jayhawks. This week, he will look across the sidelines and see a lot of familiar faces when Northern Illinois plays host to Wisconsin at Soldier Field Saturday.

Doeren spent five seasons at Wisconsin, serving as defensive coordinator for Bret Bielema. Adam Rittenberg of ESPN.com delves further into Doeren's time in Madison in his blog post yesterday, while Fred Mitchell of the Chicago Tribune posted this story on Doeren's familiarity with Wisconsin and how the team has responded after the disappointing setback to Kansas.
