Wisconsin women’s hockey back in the national championship

The Wisconsin women’s hockey team will face off with Ohio State in the National Championship on Sunday in Durham, New Hampshire. The Badgers defeated Colgate 3-1 in the semifinals Friday, setting up a rematch with the Buckeyes.

Mark Johnson’s squad is the reigning national champions, taking down Ohio State 1-0 in the title game last March, securing their seventh championship in program history.

In five contests against the Buckeyes this season, Wisconsin has gone 2-3, but they have won the last two matchups, including a 6-3 victory in the WCHA Final Faceoff title game on March 9.

The Badgers come into Sunday’s contest red-hot, winners of seven games in a row, while the Buckeyes took down Clarkson 4-1 in the semifinals Friday.
