CIS Top 10 Rankings - UNB #2 For Third Consecutive Week

For the third week in a row, the UNB Varsity Reds were ranked #2 in the CIS Top 10 Rankings, after a week in which they defeated #4 Saint Mary’s and lost to StFX. Alberta once again comes in at #1. Wilfrid Laurier moves up to #3, which is fair, because conference champs get the top 3 seeds at Nationals, and Laurier is this week’s best bet to come out of the OUA as champion. Saskatchewan falls to #8, which is the lowest they’ve been in about two and a half seasons.

UNB received 1 first place vote, and some guy actually voted for Laurier as the top team in the country. In case anyone is wondering, the last time Laurier played UNB, they lost 10-2 (Fall 2007), and the last time they played Alberta they lost 8-2 (Nationals 2006). Not that it matters, we're just sayin'. Alberta. Laurier. You decide.

Other AUS teams to crack the top 10 were SMU who moved up to #4, and Moncton who moved up to #7, keeping the total at 3 teams. Noticeably absent was StFX who probably deserves to be in the top 10, and CIS Nationals host team, Lakehead.
