After a 6-3 win on Friday night, the No. 6 Wisconsin Badgers are looking to complete the sweep against the No. 17 Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday, with the game set to start at 7:00 P.M. CT.

After a small slide, the Badgers have been winners of four straight, most recently sweeping the Ohio State Buckeyes at home before beating Penn State on Friday.

Wisconsin concludes a six-game home stretch on Saturday before a three-week break, and will look to add another victory over a ranked team to their resume.

The Badgers started off strong on Friday, as goals from William Whitelaw and Carson Bantle in the first period within two minutes of each other kicked things off.

Bantle’s night only started there, as the senior was able to put up a hat trick in the 6-3 win, scoring once in each period, including a power-play goal in the third.

Whitelaw poured in two of his own as well, as the Badgers ultimately won 6-3 in the effort.

On Saturday, they’ll wrap up the series against a Penn State team that stands at 9-6-3 on the season.

Can the Badgers keep things rolling on Saturday? The game starts at 7 P.M. CT.
