Men’s hockey No. 1 following BC blowout

The Gopher men’s hockey team is ranked No. 1 in the country again following an 8-1 win over the previous top team, Boston College.

Minnesota was ranked No. 4 before the latest USCHO poll but earned 35 of 50 first-place votes this week to unseat the Eagles.

The Gophers will face No. 3 Notre Dame at Mariucci Arena on Tuesday, Jan. 8 before opening a home series against Alaska-Anchorage the following weekend.
