A few weeks ago, the Wisconsin Badgers volleyball team announced the dates for its 2023 non-conference slate. Now, we have the full schedule for Badger fans.
UW will kick off the search for its fifth-straight Big Ten title against the Northwestern Wildcats in Evanston, Ill. on Friday, Sept. 22.
The conference schedule — released by the Big Ten Wednesday morning — will include two three-game homesteads. The first will include home games against Rutgers, Maryland and Ohio State on Oct. 13, Oct. 15 and Oct. 18. The other will include a likely crucial stretch featuring the season’s only Border Battle against Minnesota on Oct. 29, a tilt against the Purdue Boilermakers on Nov. 1 and a final contest against the Illinois Fighting Illini on Oct. 4.
The Badgers will then go on a four-game road trip in November, including matchups against Penn State and Purdue, before closing out the season at the UW Field House with matches against the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Iowa Hawkeyes.
The first round of the NCAA Tournament would start at select sites on Nov. 30. The Badgers’ full schedule is listed below.
