Penn State women's volleyball beats Wisconsin 3-1 to advance to the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament.

The No. 5 Penn State women's volleyball squad closed out a momentous weekend with a 3-1 victory over the No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers in the Elite Eight round of the NCAA Tournament. The win comes on the heels of their 3-0 sweep of UCLA on Friday in the Sweet 16 round.

The defending national champions beat this year's Big Ten champion Wisconsin squad for the seventh consecutive time, including last year's championship match.

Although the Lions lost the initial set (22-25), the first set they have lost in the last 17 matches, they roared back to win the next three (25-16, 25-22, 25-19) taking the 3-1 victory.

Penn State will face the winner of the Florida vs. Stanford match on Friday.
