Minnesota Duluth was the unanimous No. 1 in the USCHO.com 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.
