A 10-0 start and a Minnesota loss at North Dakota mean Wisconsin moves into first in both polls.

Wisconsin is home to four national championships and some of the most recognized names in international women's hockey.

Yet no Badger team has ever started their season 10-0. No WCHA team has ever recorded eight straight shutouts. The have not allowed a goal in the last 521:15 of game play.

The Badgers were rewarded for their impressive start to the season with the number one ranking in both the USCHO and USA Today polls.

With 24 points through eight league games, the Badgers are also atop the WCHA after Minnesota fell to North Dakota last weekend.

Boston College is also undefeated and they sit at number two, while Minnesota fell to number three in the polls this week.

The Badgers have a bye weekend in their calendar this week and two of their stars, sophomore Emily Clark and junior Sarah Nurse are playing with Team Canada in the Four Nations Cup tournament in Sweden.

Wisconsin returns to the ice November 13-14 with a series at Minnesota-Duluth.
