The Wisconsin mens soccer team will face one of its toughest tests yet this season when it squares off against No. 7 Illinois-Chicago at 6 p.m. tonight at McClimon Soccer Complex.

The Badgers (4-3-2 overall, 1-0-1 Big Ten) enter the match against the Flames on a three-game unbeaten streak. Included in that stretch are a win over Michigan and a tie at Michigan State last Sunday to help UW post its first unbeaten record through two games in conference play since 1996.

Illinois-Chicago (7-0-2) won its Horizon League opener against Detroit on Sunday 3-0 to extend its school-record unbeaten streak to nine games. UIC has not allowed a goal in its last three games and has out-scored its opponents 9-0 in that stretch.

The Flames, unranked in the preseason poll, have used a strong start to the season to catapult themselves to a No. 9 national ranking, according to the NCSAA/adidas National Rankings. The ranking marks the first top 10 national ranking in the programs history.

Wisconsin is 2-1 all-time against Illinois-Chicago, with their first ever meeting coming in 2001. The Badgers won the most recent meeting between the two squads, coming up with a 2-0 win in 2003.

Kick off between Wisconsin and Illinois-Chicago is set for 6 p.m. tonight at McClimon Soccer Complex.
