MADISON, Wis. -- Senior defender Eric Conklin has been named to College Soccer News' National Team of the Week for his part in the pair of wins the Wisconsin men's soccer team recorded last week.
Conklin, who tallied the game-winning goal in Wednesday's 2-0 win over in-state rival Marquette, also anchored a UW defense that scored consecutive shutouts over the Golden Eagles and No. 25 Ohio State.

The Badgers, winners of four of the last five matches, sit atop the Big Ten Conference standings at 3-2 after Sunday's win over Ohio State. Wisconsin hosts Northern Illinois at 7 p.m. Wednesday, when Conklin and eight other seniors will be honored as part of Senior Day.
The Badgers then close out their Big Ten slate on Saturday against a nationally-ranked Penn State team that sits just behind UW in the Big Ten rundown.
