Number 1! Tech Hockey is Top-Ranked Team in the Nation

HOUGHTON, Mich. – This week's No. 1 team in college hockey is the undefeated Michigan Tech Huskies. After being unranked in the preseason and first three polls, Tech climbed from 17 to nine to five to one. The Huskies were last ranked No. 1 in 1976.

"I'm happy for our players are who are starting to gain recognition for their hard work," coach Mel Pearson said. "Like I've told them, if you're not number one you are always working towards that. Now we need to prove why we are deserving of this ranking."

The Huskies (10-0, 8-0 WCHA) are the only remaining undefeated Division I college hockey team and are off to the program's best start in the 94th season. They host No. 9-ranked Minnesota State at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena this weekend. The puck drops at 7:07 p.m. both nights.

"It's still early in the year and we have a lot of hockey to play," added Pearson. "We have to continue to get better every day, but I think it's proof that we are doing the right things."

Special ticket prices are available through the Super Saver Hotline on 920 AM, the Daily Mining Gazette, and TV6 Straight UP Deals.

The 10-0 start is the best in college hockey since 2008-09 season when Air Force won its first 13 games. Michigan Tech also won 10 in a row in 1977-78 (11 wins), 1975-76 (11), 1970-71 (16), and 1961-62 (20).
