Head coach Paula Wilkins and her young Wisconsin (1-1-2) team are headed west this weekend to take on No. 2 Stanford (3-0-0) on Thursday and No. 22 Santa Clara (2-2-0) on Sunday.
After a tough start to their Big Ten schedule last weekend, the Badgers (0-1-1 Big Ten, 3-4-3 overall) will look to get their first conference win of the year. They will take on both Indiana (0-0-2, 3-3-4) and Purdue (1-1-0, 6-3-0) this week- end. In order for Wisconsin to get a win against one of its conference foes, it will need to start putting the ball into the back of the net and establish more offensive consistency.
The Badgers may be red hot, but there is no doubt the team is looking forward to leaving the brutal cold as they head to Florida for their second game in the NCAA tournament.
Wisconsin will face one of its toughest tests all season in the first round of the NCAA tournament Saturday as the Badgers (18-2-2) take on DePaul (16-0-4) in Madison.

After two Big Ten road shutouts to defeat Indiana and Purdue, No. 13 Wisconsin takes on Ohio State (2-3-0 Big Ten, 5-6-0 overall) Friday and No. 7 Penn State (5-0-0, 10-1-0) Sunday to begin a three-game homestand.
As the Badgers embark on their second major road trip of the season, they are hoping to have a little better luck than they did last time. Two weeks ago, they headed to Michigan, where they escaped with an overtime win in their first game before suffering their first loss of the season in the second.
Two games have resulted in two wins for the Badgers already this season, and if they can replicate those results again this weekend, they will be on their best start to a season since 2004.
With eight of their first ten games being on the road, the No. 18 Wisconsin women’s soccer team (2-0-1 Big Ten, 7-1-2 overall) is coming home to host defending Big Ten champion No. 7 Penn State (3-0-0, 9-1-1) Friday and Ohio State (1-1-1, 7-2-2) Sunday.

The Wisconsin women’s soccer team (5-5-1 Big Ten, 12-8-1 overall) traveled to Los Angeles to meet a familiar foe Saturday night in a first-round NCAA tournament matchup.

After an up-and-down season for the Wisconsin women’s soccer team (5-5-1 Big Ten, 12-7-1 overall), the Badgers claimed an at-large bid in the NCAA tournament Monday night.
