Michigan State retains the No. 1 spot in this week's MiCHO Power Poll after a hard-fought split with Michigan last weekend.
Ferris State stays at No. 2, just barely, and the Wolverines round out the top three.
Northern Michigan jumps to the fourth spot after tying and beating Alaska, while last week's No. 4, Lake Superior State, despite being idle, drops to No. 5.
Michigan Tech ended their brutal winless streak by splitting with Minnesota State and moving to No. 6. Western Michigan, swept by Miami, now sit in the basement of the poll.
