The top six spots in this week’s USCHO.com Division I Women’s Poll are unchanged from a week ago, and that includes Wisconsin staying the top team in the country with 11 of 15 first-place votes.
Cornell, with the four other first-place votes, sits in the second spot, while Boston University (No. 3), Minnesota (No. 4), Mercyhurst (No. 5) and Minnesota-Duluth (No. 6) are where they were this time last week.
Boston College is the new seventh-ranked team, leap-frogging last week’s No. 7 team, North Dakota, which is now ranked eighth.
Providence stays at No. 9, while Harvard, unranked a week ago, enters the poll this week as the country’s tenth-best team.
