Boston College sits atop the first men's college hockey rankings of November, while the Denver Pioneers and Colorado College Tigers both sit in the top 25 released by the USCHO on Monday.

At the top of the rankings, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are ranked No. 2, followed by Denver, Cornell and Miami, in that order.

Denver held steady from last week at No. 3 despite splitting a weekend series with St. Cloud State. The Pioneers were defeated by the No. 15 team in the rankings on Friday, but beat St. Cloud State 6-1 on Saturday. The Pioneers' first loss of the year puts them at 5-1-0.

Denver received one first-place vote this week, while Boston College took away 48 first-place votes out of 50 total.

Colorado College re-entered the top 25 this week and is ranked 19th after a weekend sweep of the Wisconsin Badgers. Colorado College won 5-4 in overtime on Friday then shutout Wisconsin on Saturday, and the Tigers sit at 5-3-0 on the year.
