OXFORD, Ohio – A split against Denver left the Miami hockey team right where it was last week in national polling.

The RedHawks are ranked No. 12 nationally in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls. MU closed out the 2013 portion of its regular season schedule with a 4-2 win over Denver last Saturday.

Minnesota is the top-ranked team in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll while St. Cloud State is the new No. 1 in the USCHO.com poll.

Miami is idle from regular season play until a Jan. 10 game at Western Michigan. The RedHawks do play an exhibition against the USA Under-18 National Team on Dec. 31.
