Examining the latest round of NCAA hockey rankings for the week of December 3.
The college hockey season is in full swing now. Following another busy week of action, Boston College, which was been ranked No. 1 for much of the year, dropped down a slot in the polls.
The new top team in the country is New Hampshire, which captured 31 of the 50 first-place votes. UNH finished with 12 points more than BC this week, and it appears these two could be in for another swap in the coming weeks. The two schools have combined to drop just three games this season.
As for the rest of the top 10, Miami, Minnesota and Notre Dame holds spots three, four and five. Denver came in sixth, while Boston University rose two spots to enter this week's poll at No. 7. BU is tied with Western Michigan with 644 points. North Dakota and Dartmouth rounded out the top 10.
The only other school from the Boston area to make an appearance in the poll was Harvard, which ranks 20th in the country. The complete top 20 can be found here.
