In the first-ever meeting between the two teams, there was no shortage of excitement as Mark Segbers scored off David Caban’s assist with less than two minutes remaining in regulation to tie the game.

Earlier in the match, Tom Barlow scored in the 11th minute off Segbers’ assist to get the Badgers on the board first.

A goal by JP Correa in the 97th minute, however, brought the game to an abrupt end as the Scarlet Knights escaped Madison with a 3-2 overtime win in their Big Ten opener.

In front of an enthusiastic crowd of 1,610, the tenth largest crowd ever at the McClimon Complex, goalkeeper Casey Beyers recorded a season-high nine saves.

The Badgers (3-11-3, 0-7-1 Big Ten) will enter Saturday’s game coming off a 2-0 loss at No. 16 Northwestern. Eight Badgers recorded shots as Wisconsin outshot Northwestern, 11-5, but Wisconsin could never get past talented goalkeeper Tyler Miller.

Barlow and Segbers share the team lead in goals with a four apiece, while Segbers leads in assists (5) and points (13).

Heading into the postseason, the Badgers look to build off momentum and finally earn their first conference win after many close chances this season. Out of eight Big Ten games, the Badgers played into overtime four times and suffered three heartbreaking defeats to Rutgers, Michigan and No. 23 Penn State while holding No. 2 Indiana to a 2-2 tie.

With one of the nation’s toughest schedules, the young Wisconsin team has gained plenty of experience against the nation’s best. Wisconsin has played nine teams currently ranked or receiving votes in the NSCAA Coaches Poll this season, including current No. 14 Xavier, who the Badgers shut out 4-0 earlier in the season.

Rutgers (5-11-1, 1-6-1 Big Ten), the No. 8 seed of the tournament, comes into the tournament following a 3-2 loss to top-seeded Maryland on Wednesday. In conference play, Rutgers picked up its three points with a win in Madison and tying Michigan State, 0-0. Jason Wright controls the Rutgers offense with 20 points off of eight goals, and JP Correa follows with three goals and one assist.

In goal for the Scarlet Knights, David Greczek has posted a .718 save percentage and allowed 29 goals while appearing in 15 games this season.

Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. on Saturday at Ludwig Field in College Park, Maryland. The winner of the quarterfinals will then face Maryland on Sunday.

1 YOUTH MOVEMENT: Wisconsin welcomes 12 freshmen to Madison this year. This year's class includes two Gatorade Player of the Year winners and three players ranked among the country's top 150 recruits (TopDrawerSoccer).

2 ST. LOUIS STRIKER: Freshman forward Mark Segbers scored his team-leading fourth goal vs. Rutgers (Sept. 12). The true freshman is currently third in the Big Ten for assists (5) and assists per game (0.31).

3 CAPTAIN CONNER: A second-team All-Big Ten member last season, Drew Conner provides experience in the midfield after starting all 21 games last year. He was ranked the 73rd best college soccer player by Top Drawer Soccer.

4 BOUNTIFUL BRINDLE: Senior team captain Jacob Brindle returns after finishing second on the team last season in points (17). He currently tied for third on the team in points, having tallied seven points on three goals and one assist.

5 DON'T COUNT 'EM OUT: Don't count the Badgers out until it's over. Wisconsin has scored 11 of its 18 goals in the second half. The Badgers earned their first win in a 4-0 route of Xavier (Aug. 31) behind four second-half scores.

6 BATTLING BADGERS: UW has shown it's not afraid to face the nation's best. Including preseason, the Badgers have already faced eight teams in the NSCAA Coaches Poll. That includes a 4-0 win in Madison over current No. 14 Xavier.

7 WRECKING THE RANKED: Wisconsin won five matches last season against teams that appeared in the NSCAA national poll. The Badgers have had six chances at currently ranked opponents this year, beating No. 14 Xavier, 4-0, tying No. 2 Indiana and falling to No. 11 Georgeotwn, No. 17 Maryland, No. 21 Michigan State and No. 23 Penn State.

8 WINNING WAYS: The Badgers won 14 games in 2013, which tied for the fifth-winningest season in school history and the most with head coach John Trask at the helm of Wisconsin. It was the most UW wins since 1995.

9 KEEP ON DANCING: Wisconsin looks to get back to the NCAA tournament in consecutive seasons. Last season, the Badgers earned their first trip since 1995. UW hosted its first-round match vs. Milwaukee, winning 1-0.

10 LIFE AFTER AJ: 2013 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year AJ Cochran departed last season. Cochran stepped up and scored big goals last season for UW, including scoring two goals in the final 25 minutes of action to upset Indiana.

11 REPLACING TOMO: UW will look to replace 2013 Big Ten's Offensive Player of the Year, Tomislav Zadro, who finished last season ranked first on the team in assists (8) and third for both points (16) and goals (4) in 2013.
