Air Force No. 19, CC 20 in USCHO preseason poll

USCHO announced its preseason poll with Atlantic Hockey Association favorite Air Force ranked at No. 19, well ahead of No. 20 Colorado College in the points that determine the rankings.

This is the first time AFA is ranked ahead of CC in a preseason poll since the Falcons were 19th and CC received votes in the 2009-10 preseason poll.

Boston College garnered 35 first-place votes followed by WCHA favorite Minnesota (12), CCHA preseason pick Michigan (3), North Dakota and ECAC media and coaches’ pick Union.

USCHO then points out that being a preseason No. 1 is not always a good thing for a team’s NCAA championship hopes.
