No. 9 ... No. 9 ... No. 9

Despite being idle last weekend, Minnesota State moved up in the USCHO.com/CSTV rankings, jumping up from 11th to ninth. I believe this is their highest ranking as a Division I team. Just before their 17-game unbeaten streak came to an end in 2002-03, they were ranked 10th. Following is this week's poll. I'll update this later with the USA Today/USA Hockey rankings.
