After a 3-0 win on Friday night, the No. 6 Wisconsin Badgers are looking to complete the sweep against the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday, with the game set to start at 8:00 P.M. CT.

It has been a bit of a slide for the Badgers, who dropped three straight over the past two weeks before beating Alaska-Anchorage 5-0 in the second game of the series.

Then, courtesy of a 29-save shutout by goalie Kyle McClellan, the Badgers held on for a victory, winning 3-0 in the first matchup against Ohio State on Friday.

Zach Schulz kicked things off with a goal in the first period, which Christian Fitzgerald complemented in the third with a score of his own. Finally, Lucius Cruz got an empty net goal late in the final period, providing Wisconsin with a 3-1 victory.

Currently standing at 11-4, the Badgers will look to uphold their 6-1 record at home, and they will return Tyson Jugnauth

They’ll take on an Ohio State team that stands at 5-6-3 on the season, including 0-6-1 in conference play.

Can the Badgers keep things rolling on Saturday? The game starts at 8 P.M. CT.
