The Iowa softball team will return home for a double-header against Wisconsin today at Pearl Field.

The first game is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. A 30-minute break will take place between the first and second games.

Iowa comes into the double-header at 26-17 overall, 8-4 in Big Ten play after splitting a pair of games with No. 1 Michigan last weekend. The 4-2 victory on April 23 was the Hawkeyes' first win over a top-ranked opponent in six years. The team was an inning away from sweeping the Wolverines, but allowed three runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to drop the second game of the series, 3-2.

The Badgers come to town 24-19 overall, 4-8 in the Big Ten, which puts them ninth in the conference. They are led by Jennifer Krueger, who is hitting .365 on the season, and Cassandra Darrah, who has gone 13-7 from the pitching circle and has a 2.68 ERA.

Iowa leads the all-time series 37-7, and it has won the last six games between the two teams.
