MADISON, Wis. (WKOW) -- The Badgers had only been named No. 1 for two days when the No. 3 Gophers pulled off a three set sweep in front of a sold out crowd at UW Field House on Wednesday night. 

The Gophers controlled the net from the start, out-blocking the Badgers 14 to 3, and registered 45 kills to the Badgers 32. 

It's the first time this season the Badgers have failed to win a set in a match.

Wisconsin is now 14-2. They face No. 23 Michigan on Saturday in Ann Arbor.
