MAR 01, 2013 9:31p ET
Wisconsin, now 15-11-7 overall, enjoyed leads of 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2 early on in Friday's action, thanks to goals from Mark Zengerle, Joseph LaBate and Michael Mersch. Nebraska-Omaha briefly knotted the score at 3-all midway through the third period, when Andrej Sustr lit the lamp. But Woods' even-strength goal late helped the Badgers turn back host UNO (18-13-2).
The Badgers' effort was greatly aided by netminder Joel Rumpel's 24 saves.
Friday night's attendance was announced at 10,543 at CenturyLink Center.
