The BSU Beavers keep moving up in the USCHO.com poll, and after a weekend off head for Michigan’s Upper Peninsula this weekend.
Bemidji State is 16-8-4, and despite taking a week off, have moved up another couple spots in the USCHO.com Top 20. The Beavers are up to #16 in the latest poll, and are one of three WCHA teams in poll. Minnesota State is ranked third and Northern Michigan is #18.
The Beavers are at Northern Michigan tomorrow and Saturday. Bemidji leads Northern Michigan by seven points for second place in the conference. The Beavers trail Mankato by 11 points, but the Mavericks have the weekend off, so a Bemidji State road sweep would get them within five points.
The Beavers are one of three Minnesota teams in the top 20…#3 Minnesota State and #4 UMD are the others. UND remains the (nearly) consensus #1, with 48 of 50 first place votes.
