The University of Minnesota men's and women's hockey teams are again atop the college hockey rankings this week.

The men's team received nearly all 50 first-place votes in the USCHO.com D1 poll and retained the top spot in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine College Hockey Poll.

The Gophers (15-2-3, 5-0-1 Big Ten) are coming off a sweep at Penn State and now turn their attention to Ohio State this weekend.

The women's team (20-1-1, 14-1-1 Big Ten) received all 15 first-place votes in the latest USCHO.com poll and also kept the top spot in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine College Hockey Poll.

The women beat and tied Ohio State at home over the weekend. The Gophers will play Minnesota State this weekend.

Both the men's and women's teams will play outdoor hockey Friday night at the Hockey City Classic.
