Top-ranked Boston College stayed atop both bolls, while No. 2 New Hampshire received the only other available first-place vote in both.

Minnesota, Miami and Denver rounded out the top five in both polls.

UND's opponent this week, Colorado College, was ranked No. 18 in the USCHO poll. UND and the Tigers are tied for fifth place in the WCHA standings, one point out of fourth and two points out of second.
