Badgers Reach .500, Elite Eight

They may have been a three seed hosting a two seed, they may have had a losing record heading into Saturday's playoff game, but the Wisconsin Badgers hockey team upset Denver tonight at the Kohl Center 6-2 to advance to hockey's Elite Eight.

This was a major upset tonight, as many experts thought Denver would be the likely entrant from the Midwest region to make the Frozen Four (love the name). But with the Kohl Center behind their underdog Badgers, the Wisconsin hockey team makes it to the Elite Eight on the same night they hit the .500 mark for the season. Odd, but awesome.

The Badgers will now take on North Dakota in the regional final Sunday night at 7 p.m on ESPNU.
