Blowouts catapult U to No. 1 in USCHO poll

  • Updated: October 15, 2012 - 9:48 PM

The Gophers men's hockey team, No. 1 in last week's USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll, is now the top-ranked team in the nation in both polls considered to be the guide to college hockey.

This is thanks to annihilating Michigan State by a 12-2 combined score in consecutive victories Friday and Saturday. In the United States College Hockey Online poll, the Gophers moved from No. 2 to No. 1. Defending NCAA champ Boston College fell to No. 3 after a loss to Northeastern on Saturday, while North Dakota moved to No. 2.

In the new USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll, it also goes the Gophers, North Dakota and Boston College. Minnesota Duluth is ranked 13th.


• After 5-0 and 6-0 victories at St. Lawrence, the Gophers women's team remained a unanimous No. 1 in the poll, as it has been all season.

• The Gophers volleyball team remained 10th in the American Volleyball Coaches Association poll despite a loss Sunday at Nebraska, which fell one spot to No. 4.
