The Penn State men’s hockey team program moved up one spot in both the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine and USCHO.com polls to No. 14 on Monday afternoon.

The No. 14 ranking in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll is a new program high.

 The Nittany Lions (15-4-3, 5-1-0-0 Big Ten) have been ranked in seven straight releases in the USCHO poll, while appearing in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll for four straight releases. The Nittany Lion are coming off of a series sweep over Wisconsin this past weekend and have won five of their six contests so far in Big Ten play.

In the Pairwise Rankings, Penn State is currently ranked No. 15 in a poll that mimics the process by which the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee chooses its national tournament. After the six automatic bids are accounted for, the next 10 teams according to the Pairwise make the NCAA Tournament.

The Nittany Lions return to action on Friday and Saturday for a road games at Ohio State. Both games are set for 7 p.m. puck drops with BTN Plus ($) covering the live streaming.
