After a weekend split versus No. 6 North Dakota, the Miami University hockey team dropped from No. 1 to No. 3 in the week's USCHO.com national poll.

Minnesota, the new No. 1 team in the country, came away with 972 points, followed by Notre Dame (928) and Miami (874). Despite the series split, Miami still received five first-place votes. Only Minnesota (31) and Notre Dame (11) received more.

This week's opponent, Providence, is eighth with 668 points. Providence is 3-0-0 on the season and was ranked 10th in last week's USCHO.com poll.
