The UNO hockey team moved up in both Division I college hockey polls released on Monday. The Mavericks now rank 12th in the latest USA Hockey poll and 13th in the poll conducted by the web site USCHO.com.
Last week, the Mavericks were ranked 16th out of 20 in the USCHO.com poll and were not ranked but received votes in the USA Today poll which ranks only the top 15 teams. The Mavericks are coming off a sweep of visiting Wisconsin last weekend. UNO won 4-1 and 4-3 and has now won four straight games. They moved into a tie for third place in the WCHA with a record of 14-6-2 in conference play and 18-10-2 overall.
