College Hockey rankings 2012: Miami drops to No. 5 after Lake Superior split

The Miami Redhawks could have been expected to sweep the Lake Superior Lakers, but they split the series, and in turn fell to No. 5 in the USCHO Rankings. Boston College retook the No. 1 spot from New Hampshire after one week in second.

The Miami RedHawks dropped out of the top three of the USCHO Rankings this weekend with a loss to a sub-.500 Lake Superior team, snapping a major streak for Miami.

Miami had won eight straight with their only loss in the last ten games coming to now-No. 19 Ferris State. The Redhawks seemed prepped to sweep the Lakers after a 3-2 win on Friday, but they were shut out for only the second time all season in a 1-0 home loss, their first defeat in Oxford all season. After the loss, Miami dropped to No. 5 in the rankings.

There were also shakeups in the rest of the top of the rankings, with Boston College reclaiming their top spot despite only getting a tie against Providence. They rose with a loss by No. 1 New Hampshire to Boston University, who had knocked BC out of the top spot themselves by splitting a series with the Eagles. New Hampshire dropped to No. 2, with Notre Dame the top CCHA squad in the poll. Minnesota rounds out the top 5 in the No. 4 slot.

Ohio State was one of six schools also receiving votes.
