Terriers ranked No. 1 in latest USCHO.com poll

The Boston University men’s hockey team is back atop the national polls.

After a 5-1 win over Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the Terriers (11-3-2, 7-1-2 Hockey East) claimed the No. 1 ranking in this week’s USCHO.com poll. This is the second time this season that BU has a hold on the top spot in the nation. The University of North Dakota, last week’s top team, fell to No. 2 after splitting a weekend series with the University of Denver.

The 2014-15 Terriers became just the sixth team in the history of the program to finish the first half of the regular season with at least 11 wins. The last time this feat was accomplished — the 2008-09 season — BU won a national title.
