BC moved up four spots from last week’s rankings after posting a 6-0 victory over Harvard last Monday in the Beanpot semifinals and a 7-1 win at then-No. 15 Massachusetts last Friday.

After being ranked seventh in the Jan. 4 poll, the Eagles lost three of their next five games before surging again.

The poll’s top four was unchanged; Miami, Denver, Wisconsin and St. Cloud State hold those spots.

Bemidji State returned to the top five, replacing Cornell in the fifth spot.

After sweeping New Hampshire, Maine jumped four spots to 12th. The Wildcats fell two spots to 15th.

This week’s schedule features five games between ranked teams.

No. 4 St. Cloud State hosts No. 11 North Dakota on Friday and Saturday. No. 8 Cornell hosts No. 6 Yale on Saturday. And No. 10 Boston College plays a home-and-home series with No. 20 Massachusetts-Lowell — in Lowell on Friday and in Chestnut Hill on Saturday.
