Minnesota gains all 15 first-place votes, stays No. 1 in D-I women’s rankings

Minnesota remains the top-ranked team in the USCHO.com Division I Women’s Poll, garnering all 15 first-place votes this week from the poll voters.

After seeing its winning streak end at 62 games two weekends ago, the Gophers started a new streak with two wins last weekend on the road at Yale.

The next three spots are the same as the Nov. 18 poll – Wisconsin, Cornell and North Dakota – while Harvard is up one notch to No. 5 this week.

Clarkson vaults two spots to No. 6, Boston College remains seventh, Quinnipiac tumbles three spots to No. 8 and Boston University is again the No. 9 team in the nation.

At No. 10, Robert Morris enters the rankings for the first time in program history.

Mercyhurst and Minnesota-Duluth also received votes this week.

The USCHO.com Division I Women’s Poll is compiled weekly and consists of 15 voters, including 14 coaches of Division I programs and one women’s hockey writer.
