Friday Headlines: Volleyball Cats vs. No. 2 Wisconsin

New, 3 comments

Your reigning volleyball national champion Lady Wildcats will face off against the Wisconsin Badgers and the Marquette Golden Eagles for two marquee matchups this weekend. First up are the Badgers followed by the Golden Eagles before the Wildcats head back to Lexington. Kentucky is 5-1 on the year so far and two wins this weekend would result in a likely surge into the top-5.

Ranked No. 8 in the country, Kentucky will have their hands full with No. 2 Wisconsin. The Badgers have started their season 4-0, with their most impressive win coming against No. 10 Baylor via a 3-1 victory. You can catch the top-10 matchup tonight on the Big Ten Network, beginning at 9 PM EDT.

Marquette is currently unranked, but will certainly put up a fight in their chance to knock out the defending champions. The Golden Eagles are an undefeated 6-0 but have yet to play a ranked team. Their match with Kentucky will begin at 8 PM EDT on Saturday night, broadcasted on the Big East Digital Network.
