With one exhibition match under its belt, the Wisconsin women’s soccer team is ready to begin the non-conference schedule; starting with North Dakota State. UW will host the Bison at the McClimon Soccer Complex at 7 pm (CT) tomorrow.
The Badgers had an exhibition game last Thursday when they hosted Mississippi State in a closed-door scrimmage. Wisconsin beat the Bulldogs 2-0.
Tomorrow marks just the fourth time these two programs will meet. Wisconsin holds a 3-0 advantage over North Dakota State with the last matchup taking place in 2015.
Picked to finish fourth in the Summit League, North Dakota State also brings in two players named to the conference’s Players to Watch list. In 2017 the Bison finished the season 8-11 overall and 5-2 in conference. Wisconsin is one of two Big Ten programs NDSU will take on this season. The Bison also travel to Minnesota to take on the Gophers in early September.
My prediction: Wisconsin 2, NDSU 0.
