Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The UMD Bulldogs men's hockey team fell six spots to #15 in this week's U.S. College Hockey Online poll, following a weekend sweep by in-state rival Minnesota.

The Golden Gophers beat the Bulldogs by identical 5-4 scores on Friday and Saturday, good enough for them to jump six spots to #8 in this week's poll.

UMD, now (1-3) overall this season, will make its first road trip of the season this weekend, traveling to take on unranked Providence on Friday and Saturday.
