GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- After a weekend off from competition for the 2013 Four Nations Cup, the University of North Dakota women's hockey team remains the nation's fourth ranked team in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls.

North Dakota has been ranked No. 4 in the nation by both polls since Oct. 28/29. UND has swept its two previous opponents on the road, St. Cloud State (Oct. 25-26) and Bemidji State (Nov. 1-2).

Two other Western Collegiate Hockey Association teams are ranked, with Minnesota earning the unanimous No. 1 spot in both polls and Wisconsin right behind the Gophers at No. 2 in both polls. Additionally, both Minnesota and Wisconsin are North Dakota's next two opponents.

Later in December, UND will travel to Clarkson, Dec. 6-7, who earned a No. 9 ranking in the USCHO.com poll and an No. 7 ranking in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.
