It was a good week to be a Badger fan. The football team dominated Nebraska to remain tied with Minnesota for first in the Big Ten West. Men’s basketball raised last season’s Final Four banner and dominated both of its opponents.
Saturday night, the Badgers (2-9-2, 0-5-0 Big Ten) were defeated by Ohio State (5-5-3, 3-2-0 Big Ten) by a score of 2-0 to continue Wisconsin’s rough season. Wisconsin was only able to put the ball in the back of the net on one of their 12 shots.
The No. 12 Badgers (6-2-1 Big Ten, 12-2-1 overall) took down Northwestern 2-0 on a road trip in Evanston, Ill. This was the fourth game in ten days for the Badgers and came against a Wildcats team coming off their first conference win. The Badgers benefited from a career day by goalkeeper Genevieve Richard and goals from senior forward Cara Walls and junior midfielder Kinley McNicoll.
Looking to rebound from its Sunday loss to No. 6 Penn State, No. 12 Wisconsin (5-2-1 Big Ten, 11-2-1 overall) played to a scoreless tie in double overtime against Iowa Wednesday.
