Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A weekend off may have come at the right time for the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD) men's hockey team, but it did cost the Bulldogs a few spots in this week's U.S. College Hockey Online (USCHO) poll.
UMD fell three spots to #20 in this week's poll, the last available position before exiting the rankings completely. There are now six teams from the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) in the top 20, with Colorado College entering the rankings this week.
The Bulldogs are (2-3-1) so far this season and will next be in action November 10-11 on the road against Nebraska-Omaha.
