MADISON, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Wisconsin men's hockey team plunged out of the Top-10 Monday, after losing a pair of games in Boston over the weekend. 

The Badgers dropped from second place to 11th in the U-S College Hockey Online poll, after losing at Boston College 9-to-2 and at Boston University 7-to-3.  The Badgers lost both their games in the inaugural Big Ten-Hockey East Challenge. 

Mike Eaves' team dropped to 2-and-2 on the young season.  Boston College moved up two places to fifth in the new poll, and Boston University rose two spots to 13th.  Minnesota is the new Number-One, after Miami-of-Ohio fell two places to third.

Meanwhile, the Badger women moved up two spots to second in their new poll, after sweeping Saint Cloud State over the weekend. 

Wisconsin is 4-and-2 overall, and 2-and-2 in the W-C-H-A.  Unbeaten Minnesota is at Number-One.
