Dec. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Yale University’s men’s hockey team is ranked No. 1 for the first time in school history today after victories over No. 13 Union College and No. 15 Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute this past weekend.

The USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll ranked the Bulldogs (10-1) ahead of the University of Minnesota Duluth (12-2-2), the University of New Hampshire (9-2-4) and Boston College (11-5).

Yale is the first East Coast Athletic Association team to be ranked No. 1 since Cornell University entered the 2003 National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament as the top seed. The Bulldogs have been ranked fifth or better since the season began and have the nation’s longest active win streak at five games.

Yale is off to its best start since the 1929-30 season when the team went 16-0 in route to a 17-1-1 finish. The team hosts the University of Vermont in New Haven, Connecticut, on Dec. 8.
