Not a whole lot changed this week, with no teams changing positions on the board. Interestingly, UAA managed to grab four extra points (the biggest change of any team on the board) after a weekend split with Bemidji (4-1 win on Friday and 1-0 loss on Saturday) but BSU didn't change positions at all. Michigan Tech's GLI performance also had no effect on the end polling, despite a two-goal victory over Michigan and a 1-0 OT loss to Western Michigan.
|1t||Bemidji State (5)||95||1||14-7-3||2.6||1||2|
|1t||Michigan Tech (5)||95||1||13-8-3||2.3||1||2|
