Rankings out...BU#6, BC loses grasp on #1

The USCHO.COM polls for this week were just released and look as follows for the top ten
1. Miami(OH)
2. Boston (Newton)College
3. Minnesota-Duluth
4. Michigan
5. Yale
6. Boston University
7. Maine
8. North Dakota
9. Nebraska-Omaha
10. New Hampshire

No real shockers here as BC loses its #1 title with a loss to #13 Notre Dame as their priests touched more little boys than the priests down in Newton to come out with the 2-1 victory Saturday night. Miami takes the #1 spot as they beat Western Michigan 9-1 over the weekend and ND lost two tough ones up in Orono to those streaky Maine Black Bears(I know it is only three weekend but this team is streaky). No other hockey east schools are in the poll as Vermont and Merrimack received votes but that shows how poor the rest of the league is looked upon by the rest of the country this season. BC only loses one place in the poll as nobody else did much to make a move besides Miami as Yale has not played yet and Michigan also has a loss so BU would have been next in line to pass the Eagles but it a little early in the season for that to happen. We will wait until early April to pass them in the standings(aslong as we win the head to head games for bragging rights). We will take the jump from 8 to 6 after a solid four point weekend in HE play. The Terriers look to continue the wins against UMASS Lowell in a home and home this weekend.

-Also the BU women held onto their #5 ranking in the national poll after a four point weekend.
