It’s been 13 years since the Wisconsin volleyball team won a Big Ten Conference title. That streak could come to an end this week.
The Badgers need just one more match victory to claim a share of the Big Ten Championship. It starts with a road game at last-place Rutgers tonight, for a chance to at least share the title with Penn State. But a win over the Scarlet Knights and another over 16th-ranked Purdue on Friday will give Wisconsin the championship outright.
The Badgers enter action tonight riding a school-record 17 straight conference match win streak and leading the league with a 17-1 record. Penn State is 16-2 with only two matches remaining and face a road match at Northwestern and a home match against No. 11 Nebraska.
Wisconsin has captured four Big Ten titles (1990, 1997, 2000 and 2001). Friday’s match against Purdue is already sold out.
