Mavericks slip to 10th

Minnesota State dropped a spot, from No. 9 to No. 10, in both national polls on Monday, following its series split at home against Ferris State. The Mavericks are 6-2-0, still one of the better records in college hockey and their own best October since joining the WCHA in 1999.

Minnesota Duluth was the unanimous No. 1 in the poll after its sweep of previous No. 1 North Dakota, which dropped to third. Denver is No. 2 and received one first-place vote in the USA Today/USA Hockey poll.

Bemidji State, which is also 6-2-0, is the only other WCHA team in the top 20, moving up to No. 18. Lake Superior State, this coming weekend's opponent for Minnesota State, is also receiving votes.
