Vermont Makes Top 20, Minnesota Keeps No. 1 Spot In USCHO College Hockey Poll


Santaguida Vermont hockeyThe 2-0 Minnesota Golden Gophers haven’t let go of the stronghold they’ve had on the No. 1 spot — which they’ve held since before the start of the season — but other schools are inching their way to the top of the rankings in the U.S. College Hockey Online poll.

UMass-Lowell moved up to seventh from No. 9 in the rankings after a win and a tie with Quinnipiac — who dropped two spots — during their weekend series. The River Hawks started the season at No. 17.

Vermont, who was unranked during the first two weeks of the season, settled into 17th after three straight wins to begin their 2014-15 campaign.
