MADISON, Wis. – The inaugural Augustana hockey game is official. The Vikings will take to the ice for the first time in program history with a two-game series at Wisconsin on Oct. 7-8.


Augustana will meet with the Badgers on what is homecoming weekend for the host school in the 15,539-seat Kohl Center, the second-largest collegiate rink in the nation.
