Minnesota remained No. 1 in both the USCHO.com and the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls released today.
 
The Maroon and Gold began the year ranked No. 19 in the USCHO.com poll and was unranked in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll. However, after only five weeks, the the Gophers climbed to the top of both polls.
 
Today's polls mean that the Gophers will play four straight games as the top-ranked team in the nation for the first time since Nov. 21-29, 2008 (split at Denver, lost to Michigan and tied Michigan State).

The last time the Gophers played more than four straight games as No. 1 was during the 2006-07 season. The Gophers played 18 straight games as the No. 1 team in the country from Nov. 18, 2006 - Jan. 27, 2007 (record was 13-4-1 in those games).

Minnesota's 4-1 win at Wisconsin on Saturday was its first win as the No. 1-ranked team in the country since Nov. 21, 2008 when it beat Denver 5-2 on the road. 

The Gophers play at rival St. Cloud State on Friday before hosting the Huskies on Saturday.
