Badgers stun defending national champions

The University of Wisconsin Badger volleyball team (6-8 Big Ten, 14-12 overall) made a big statement on Sunday in front of more than 4,000 fans, shocking Penn State (11-3, 18-6), the four-time defending NCAA champions. Lead by freshman Ellen Chapman's career day (18 kills, 14 digs), the Badgers beat the Nittany Lions in five sets. Fumbling slightly in a hard fought third, and falling further in the fourth, the pressure didn't seem to get to the Badgers as a 15-12 fifth set sealed the deal. Sunday's win gave Wisconsin its biggest upset since 2006, also against Penn State. Wisconsin will take on No. 23 Michigan on Friday night and Michigan State on Saturday night at the UW Field House.
