Minnesota is ranked No. 1 in both major polls.
Go Gophers!
Minnesota is the new No. 1 team in the country in the USCHO poll. News of the Gophers new ranking caused USCHO.com to momentarily crash. The Gophers started the season No. 19 but climbed to No. 1 after five weeks.

Minnesota also moved from No. 5 to No. 1 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll. The Gophers began the season unranked in this poll.

The 9-1-0 Gophers last played a game ranked No. 1 on Nov. 29, 2008. They tied Michigan State 4-4 at home.

Minnesota swept rival North Dakota at home last weekend.

It's great after the last few years. I'd feel way better if the poll were from February 7 instead of November 7. Keep it up boys! Beat the BADgers!

It is tremendous to see the growth and emergence of thia team and their tremendous skills. Congatulations to the team and outstanding coaches on this hard earned recognition. It will not be easy down the stretch -- but Coach Lucia and Coach Guentzel have been there before to guide this outstanding team.
