    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern wraps up the 2011 regular season this week with a pair of matches against two highly-ranked foes. On Wednesday, Nov. 23 the 'Cats travel to Champaign, Ill. to take on No. 7 Illinois ahead of returning to Welsh-Ryan Arena to welcome No. 2 Nebraska on Saturday, Nov. 26 at 7 p.m.

    Wednesday's contest at Illinois is the final regular season road match of the season. The Wildcats dropped the first meeting of the season between the two teams on Oct. 19, 3-0, at Welsh-Ryan Arena. Saturday's match against the Cornhuskers is the first ever between the two schools since Nebraska has joined the Big Ten. It is the fifth meeting ever between the two programs, with the 'Huskers capturing the previous four meetings.


     

     

    Saturday's match is also Senior Night for NU's two graduating players. Alex Ayers and Mary Grace Gallagher will be honored in a brief pre-match ceremony before suiting up one last time in front of the fans at Welsh-Ryan Arena.
