It's a Top 5 week for two Minnesota teams in both major men's college hockey polls.
A big weekend in North Dakota bumped St. Cloud State University all the way up to the No. 3 spot in the USCHO.com and to No. 4 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine rankings. The Huskies (5-0-1) previously sat at the No. 8/9 spot in the polls.
No change for the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers (5-0-1) however. The boys in maroon and gold stay at No. 1 in the polls with unanimous votes for first in both.
Likewise the Gopher women's team continues its win-streak that extends into last season to stay atop both women's college hockey polls unanimiously. Minnesota (10-0-0) has been No. 1 in the polls since March of 2012.
Minnesota State University-Mankato came in at No. 18 in the men's USCHO poll and received six votes in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll. The University of Minnesota Duluth was No. 20 and received eight votes in the polls respectively.
