At No. 16, Union is down three, Niagara is up one to No. 17 and St. Cloud State falls three to No. 18.

Previously-unranked Colgate (No. 19) and Massachusetts-Lowell (No. 20) enter the poll this week to round out the top 20.

The Division I Men’s Poll consists of 50 voters, including 28 coaches from the Division I conferences and 22 beat writers and sports professionals from across the country.


  1. I’m so excited to have tickets to tomorrow’s game at mariucci! Golden gophers vs golden domers! We will see if that 8-1 win over BC was the real deal. If so I don’t see why the maroon and gold won’t be doing a salute on Saturday the following weekend after we grab 4 points from North Dakota

  2. How on earth are the goofs ranked #1 when they are ranked #6 in the conference and #6 in the PWR? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills! This poll is a joke!
