BC's OT winner last night vs. Boston Univ in the finals of the Beanpot had a negative impact on UM's pairwise standing. The win allowed BC to move ahead of UM in the RPI - which broke a tie with Michigan and thus won a comparison. Long story short, UM is tied for 5th with UMass-Lowell for 5th (a #2 Seed in NCAA's).
Bottom line, take care of business vs. NMU this weekend and the RPI should raise back up. If you are interested, here is the current Pairwise Ranking.
