GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota, the number one seed for the inaugural NCHC Frozen Faceoff, was ranked No. 11 nationally in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls released earlier today.

The No. 11 ranking represented a drop of one spot in both polls for UND, which defeated Colorado College in three games in the NCHC Quarterfinals last weekend.

Top-ranked Minnesota maintained its ranking in both polls, while Union overtook Boston College at No. 2 in both. BC, Ferris State and Quinnipiac rounded out the top five in both.

UND will face unranked Miami at 7:38 p.m. Central on Friday night in the second of two NCHC Frozen Faceoff semifinals. The winner advances to the championship game on Saturday night.
