BU moves up polls #3 in USCHO.COM poll

Our Terriers continue to climb in the polls this season. The Terriers have been ranked #3 nationally in the latest poll including seven first place votes. The top ten remained fairly consistent though with only some leapfrogging within the top ten.
1. Miami 5-1-2 - They had a three point weekend which is enough to hold onto your spot no matter where you are ranked
2. Minnesota Duluth- 6-0-2- They received eight first place votes and with that undefeated record probably deserved a few more.
3. BU- 6-0-1- This might be the highest we get all season in the national polls as we have beaten up on the bottom of Hockey East to climb in the rankings since taking down #11 Notre Dame and #18 Wisconsin in the Ice Breaker. This is a young team that will be tested for real by #7 Maine this weekend. If they play like they did Saturday night against Lowell, Maine will run us out of the building.
4. BC 4-2- This drop was expected after a tough loss at Merrimack's high school hockey rink on Saturday night. Expect a big bounce back Tuesday night at the expense of Lowell and BC to see the #1 ranking again at some point this season. This team is going to be battling all season through the ups and downs of defending a national title.
5. Yale 2-0- On the positive, they finally played some fucking games and won. I don't get how they received a first place vote based on two games. Congrats on putting the studying on hold for two nights to play some hockey.
6. Michigan-4-1-3- Dont really know much about these guys but seems like the ties have sent them down in the polls
7. Maine-4-1-2- They have like every big time scorer in the nation on one team. Big matchup this week with BU at Agannis Arena on Saturday night.
8.Nebraska-Omaha-5-1-0- Record speaks for itself here
9. North Dakota-4-3-1- They rebounded from a two loss to Maine last weekend to only drop one spot in the polls.
10.New Hampshire-2-1-2- They put up a touchdown on Cornell but stay in the #10 spot because they only played one game this weekend.
