North Dakota will rekindle a long-standing rivalry with Wisconsin next weekend with both programs ranked among the top 10 nationally in a pair of national polls that were released on Monday.

Following a series split at Colorado College last weekend, UND remained ranked No. 4 in the USCHO.com poll but dipped one spot to No. 5 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll. Wisconsin, coming off a split with St. Lawrence, dropped two spots in both polls and was ranked No. 7.

This week will mark the first meetings between the former WCHA rivals since Nov. 2015 and the first series in Madison between the two since Nov. 2014. The puck drops at 7 p.m. CT both nights at the Kohl Center in Madison.
