Falcons Drop In National Polls

Bowling Green dropped two spots to 12th in both of this week’s national polls.

In the U.S. College Hockey Online Top 20, the Falcons received 419 points, down from 521 a week ago.

In the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Top 15, BG totaled 91 points, compared to 174 last week.

BG, 3-1-1 overall, won just one of its three games last week, posting a 4-2 win at Canisius Friday.

The Falcons also played a 2-2 tie Saturday at the Rochester (N.Y.) Institute of Technology. They opened the week with a 4-1 loss Tuesday at Western Michigan.

BG is idle this weekend.

The Falcons return to action Oct. 31-Nov. 1 when they travel to Alaska-Anchorage for their first Western Collegiate Hockey Association series.
