It's unanimous: Gopher women No. 1 in NCAA poll


The Gophers women's hockey team is back on top of the college hockey polls.

As you can see below, the Gophers received all 19 first-place votes to earn the unanimous No. 1 ranking in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.

Minnesota held the unanimous No. 1 ranking every week of last year's 41-0-0 National Championship run. Altogether, the Gophers are riding an NCAA record 49-game win streak that dates back to the 2011-12 season.
