GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota is ranked No. 14 in the latest USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll and No. 15 in the USCHO.com Division I Men’s Poll, both of which were released earlier today.

North Dakota is coming off of a National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) split with Minnesota Duluth, winning 4-2 on Friday before falling 6-3 on Saturday. UMD climbed one spot to No. 19 in the USCHO rankings but remained unranked in the USA Today poll.

Minnesota remained the top-ranked team in both polls, with St. Cloud State jumping into the No. 2 spot in both. Providence, Quinnipiac and Michigan rounded out the top five in both polls.

UND will travel to Boston University next weekend for a non-conference series Friday and Saturday. The Terriers were unranked in both polls but received votes in the USCHO rankings.
