Last weekend was a rematch of the 2015 national championship and ... Providence and Boston University tied. Twice.
Still the Friars, the defending national champs, kept the No. 1 spot in the USCHO.com poll with a 6-0-3 record.
Yeah, they're still not No. 1 on my ballot yet because teams ahead of them keep winning. Boston College kept my first-place vote by sweeping Michigan State. I also like Quinnipiac, the only undefeated team in the country, and North Dakota, now officially the "Fighting Hawks," retained my No. 2 spot.
I kept Minnesota-Duluth in my top 20, but at No. 20 because I still think they're a good team but at 3-5-3 the Bulldogs are underperforming.
Here's my ballot, a bit late I know. I'm still on vacation time:
1. Boston College
2. North Dakota
7. St. Cloud State
8. Bowling Green
11. St. Lawrence
12. Boston University
16. Minnesota State
17. Michigan Tech
18. Notre Dame
