Wisconsin looks to keep home unbeaten streak alive against nonconference opponents San Francisco and Xavier

The No. 19 Badgers will travel to South Bend, Ind. to play Notre Dame on Sunday, Nov. 24 in the second round of the 2013 NCAA Men’s Soccer Championships. Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m. CT on WatchND.tv.

UW and Notre Dame will meet for the 13th time in series history on Sunday and just the second time in the Big Dance. Wisconsin defeated the Fighting Irish, 3-1, in Madison during the 1993 NCAA Tournament. Sunday’s match marks UW’s third meeting this season with a ranked foe and its first match against a top-5 program since 2011 when it battled Creighton.

KEY NOTES TO CONSIDER:
1 PARTY LIKE IT'S 1995: For the first time in nearly two decades, UW is making an appearance in the NCAA tournament. The Badgers are making their first appearance in the Big Dance since 1995, the same season the team won its one and only NCAA title.

LET'S DANCE: Since the program’s inception in 1977, Wisconsin has made the most of its time in the NCAA tournament. UW owns a 9-4-0 record in the Big Dance and its .693 win percentage ranks second all-time behind Indiana (.739). The Badgers are also owners of the nation’s longest current NCAA tournament unbeaten streak (6).

3 TRASK'S TENURE: UW head coach John Trask is making his fourth appearance in the NCAA tournament as a head coach, after winning a pair of titles as an assistant at Indiana. Trask owns a 7-3 career record in the tournament and has won at least a game in every appearance he has made in the Big Dance as a head coach.

4 AJ'S REIGN: AJ Cochran has been the anchor of UW’s backline each of the last two seasons, but the 2013 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year has also shown off his offensive repitoire this season. In UW’s 4-3 comeback win over Indiana on Oct. 11, Cochran was responsible for two of UW’s four scores in the final 25 minutes of action, including the game-winning score in the 84th minute. The St. Louis, Mo., native was named the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Week as a result of that performance.

RETURN OF TOMO: Named the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year, Tomislav Zadro finished the regular season first on the team in assists (8) and third in points (16) and goals (4). Despite missing three matches due to surgery, the two-time first-team All-Big Ten performer returned to help UW to a 7-2-1 record in its last nine matches.
