Boston College Jumps to Second, Maine Makes Way Into Top 10 in National College Hockey Rankings


Boston College jumped to second in the national college hockey rankings this week after dropping No. 12 Merrimack in back-to-back games over the weekend, extending its current winning streak to seven.

BC (21-10-1) kicked off the week with an overtime win over Boston University, capturing its third-straight Beanpot title, and capped things off by giving head coach Jerry York his 900th career win on Friday night.

The Eagles received 11 first-place votes this week, but still sit behind No. 1 Ferris State in the rankings.

UMass-Lowell (20-9-0) fell just one spot to seventh in the country this week after splitting a weekend series with new No. 5 Boston University (18-11-1). The River Hawks sit just a few points behind sixth-ranked Minnesota, while BU trails third-ranked Michigan and fourth-ranked Minnesota-Duluth.

Maine (18-10-3) continues to creep up in the voting, climbing one spot to 10th in the nation, while Merrimack (15-9-6) slipped five spots down to 12th after its weekend losses to BC.

On the women's side, Boston College (21-8-3) remains steady at fourth, while Northeastern (22-6-4), Harvard (20-8-1) and BU (20-13-1) sit at seventh, eighth and ninth in the nation, respectively.
