New No. 1 team in men’s D-III poll as Oswego overtakes St. Norbert

With 15 first-place votes, Oswego takes over as the top-ranked team in the USCHO.com Division III Men’s Poll this week.

Last week’s No. 1 team, St. Norbert, received four first-place votes, but tumbled to third in the poll.

No. 2 Norwich, up one notch from No. 3 last week, had the other first-place vote.

Plattsburgh stays No. 4, as does Gustavus Adolphus at No. 5 and Amherst in the sixth slot.

Hobart jumps two spots to No. 7, Adrian remains eighth, Wisconsin-River Falls is up three to No. 9, while Utica rounds out the top 10, up three from last week.

At No. 11, Wisconsin-Eau Claire jumps four spots, the Milwaukee School of Engineering falls from seventh to 12th, Bowdoin is up one to No. 13, Castleton falls three to No. 14 and St. Thomas drops six spots, but remains in the poll at No. 15 this week.

    Who gave St Scholastica points? They are 1-3 and are projected 20th in this poll. Gustavus and St Norbert each have one loss. St Norbert’s loss is to Gustavus. Gusties should be #4, SNC Green Knights should be #5. If I keep seeing crap like the St Scholastica getting points for a 1-3 record to low rankings teams, I don’t see a reason to regard this site as a valid poll.
