-All of the human polls are as of Monday afternoon, while the computer polls take into account Michigan's win on Monday and UMass-Lowell's win on Tuesday.

-Nobody had much movement in their respective top 5s with all the big teams either winning or taking the weekend off. UMass-Lowell continues to creep their way up the rankings after winning 10 of their last 11, while teams above them lose a game here or there.

-Miami had an ugly meltdown Friday night to tie Bemidji State, but rebounded with a win the next night and are now back to 14th in the Pairwise.

-We're reaching a point in the season where there aren't many outliers or disparity between the polls, whether they be human or computer. The computers still like Lake Superior a bit more than the human polls do. Same goes for Cornell, though to a lesser extent.
