Wisconsin Badgers vs. Iowa Hawkeyes: Game Thread

The Badgers will look to finish the regular season with a victory.

NCAA Womens Volleyball: Wisconsin at Nebraska Dylan Widger-USA TODAY Sports

Fresh off a 3-0 sweep over the No. 1 Nebraska Cornhuskers the Wisconsin Badgers are wrapping up their season with a match against the Iowa Hawkeyes at the UW Field House on Saturday.

Last week, the Badgers lost their third match of the season, dropping a 3-2 game to the No. 16 Purdue Boilermakers before sweeping Indiana.

But, the Badgers made up for it on Friday by avenging their October 3-2 loss with a sweep over the top-ranked Cornhuskers, potentially securing them a top-four seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The Badgers got major contributions from Anna Smrek, who had 18 kills, leading the team, with Sarah Franklin coming in second with 16.

Now, the Badgers come in with a 25-3 record, with all three losses coming on the road.

Wisconsin has an 12-0 record at home following the win over Nebraska, and will look to close out a strong season against Iowa.

Meanwhile, the Hawkeyes come in with an 8-23 record, including an ugly 0-19 in conference play. They were swept by the Badgers in October earlier this season.

Can the Badgers get the victory on Saturday?
