On the heels of its first loss in weeks, Northwestern (17-3, 7-2 B1G) is coming back to Welsh-Ryan today to take on the Michigan Wolverines (13-6, 4-4 B1G).
Their opponent is in the middle of the Big Ten, though Michigan hasn’t picked up a win against a ranked opponent yet. The Wolverines are eighth in the conference and are on the tournament bubble heading into the clash.
NU, on the other hand, is still riding a wave of positive wave of momentum, sitting in a tie for second in the Big Ten, only a game behind Iowa. The ‘Cats don’t currently have a ranked opponent on the remainder of the schedule, so they’ll have a big opportunity to rack up wins.
