Boston University holds firm at No. 7 and North Dakota is ranked eighth again this week.

Wisconsin and Northeastern flip-flop this week, with the Badgers moving to No. 9 and the Huskies sitting tenth.

Ohio State was the only other team to receive votes in this week’s poll.

    wow, Wisconsin jumped in the poll after being swept by Minnesota, I don’t get it, both North Dakota & Ohio State should be in front of them, pollsters must be basing their decision on past years. Well I guess we will see, the Badgers next 8 games are against North Dakota, Ohio State, and Minnesota. This has got to be the toughest stretch of 10 games in women’s college hockey this year. I wouldn’t be surprised if they come out of it winning 3 games or less of the 10. Luckily for them, 6 of the next 8 are home games, so maybe they will do better.
