WCHA Web Media Poll: Week 13

Three teams received first place votes this week but Minnesota remains at the top of the poll with 137 points and eight 1st place votes. North Dakota narrowed their margin behind the Gophers after a home sweep of Holy Cross. The big climber this week was Nebraska Omaha, after sweeping Colorado College, UNO is now in first place in the WCHA standings and it showed in the poll as they rise three spots to 3rd with the final two 1st place votes. Denver and Minnesota State swept their non-conference home series over the week and remain fourth and fifth respectively. The biggest fall belongs to St. Cloud State which fell three spots to sixth after getting swept at home by Northern Michigan. Not a good showing for SCSU as they continue to struggle in non-conference while they remain near the top of the WCHA standings. The bottom half saw some change too as Minnesota Duluth (Idle) and Wisconsin (swept UAA) climb two spots replacing Colorado College (swept by UNO) and Michigan Tech (Idle). Bemidji State and Alaska Anchorage remain 11th and 12th. This week gets started with a non-conference game on Tuesday between Notre Dame and Minnesota and WCHA conference play resumes this weekend with five matchups. Nebraska Omaha and Bemidji State are idle this weekend.
