Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The UMD men's hockey team was rewarded for its current hot streak on Monday afternoon, named the new #1 team in the country by both major polls.

U.S. College Hockey Online and USA Today both rank the Bulldogs as the best in the nation this week following a weekend road sweep of Michigan Tech.

The Bulldogs are riding a current 12-game unbeaten streak, the longest active streak in the nation, not having lost a game since mid-October.

UMD is on the road again this weekend, visiting the Wisconsin Badgers for a pair of conference games. Saturday's game can be seen live in the Northland on the My 9 Sports Network, with drop of the puck set for 8:07 p.m.
