Green Bay enters the contest 2-5-1 against nonconference opponents this season and is coming off a 1-0 Horizon League loss at Loyola Oct. 13 in Chicago, Ill.

The Phoenix hosts Cleveland State in its final game of the season Saturday, Nov. 3 at 1 p.m. Wisconsin fell 2-1 against Marquette in double overtime Sept. 26 before edging Cleveland State 2-1 Sept. 29. The Badgers recently fell 1-0 to Milwaukee on its home field Oct. 10.
