MSU beat Nebraska-Omaha once in regulation and then lost in a shootout last week, while Michigan looked uninspired in their sweep at the hands of the nation's No. 1-ranked Miami RedHawks.
Ferris State is the new No. 3 as the Bulldogs are off to their best start ever at 7-3-0 after taking both from Bowling Green last weekend. Western Michigan, despite sweeping Lake Superior State, falls a notch to the fourth spot.
In another change, Northern Michigan, now at No. 6, and Michigan Tech switch rankings.
