Up next

The Badgers close the first half of the season with games at Michigan State on Friday and Saturday.


The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team takes its second crack at its first Big Ten Conference sweep of the season when it hosts Michigan on Sunday at the Kohl Center (4 p.m., BTN,, 1070 AM).

The 19th-ranked Badgers opened the series by rallying for a 3-2 victory on Saturday. They won one other Big Ten series opener this season, against Notre Dame on Nov. 15. But the Irish scored a 5-4 overtime victory the next night.

UW made some changes to its fourth line for Sunday's game, bringing in Jack Gorniak and Brock Caufield to replace Max Zimmer and Dominick Mersch. Michigan is again without leading scorer Johnny Beecher due to injury.
