GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota is ranked No. 10 in the latest USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll and No. 11 in the USCHO.com Division I Men’s Poll, both of which were released earlier today.

Stuck in a three-game losing skid after being swept at home by St. Cloud State last weekend, UND dropped four spots in the USA Today poll and six spots in the USCHO rankings. The Huskies, meanwhile, climbed into the top five in both.

Minnesota, which was idle last weekend, remained the unanimous No. 1 in both poll.

UND (2-3-1, 1-3-0-0 NCHC) takes to the road for a conference series at Nebraska Omaha on Saturday and Sunday. UNO was unranked in both polls despite earning a road sweep at Denver.
