SB Nation’s Women’s College Hockey Division I Poll: Tiger Time

With our final poll of 2018 we seemed to have settled into a set top 10.

This weekend pretty much went according to plan besides one big loss and was especially calm compared to weekend. This will be our last poll of the semester as there is only one series this coming weekend.

The Badgers comfortably swept the Huskies and will end the semester atop our poll.
