2nd SECHC Rankings

Arkansas retains Top Spot:

The 2nd SECHC Coach’s Poll results are in and Arkansas retains the top spot by receiving nine of the eleven #1 votes. 2nd Place Vanderbilt received two #1 votes and are solidly in 2nd place. Georgia, Florida and South Carolina finish strong at #3, #4 and #5 respectfully, followed by Ole Miss, Auburn and Tennessee rounding out the top 8 positions. We have lots of hockey to play with plenty of opportunity for teams to make a move into the Top-8.

A third poll will take place in mid-December followed by the final poll in mid-January. The teams ranked in the Top-8 in our final poll will qualify for the SECHC Playoffs to be held at the Ford Ice Center, Antioch, Tennessee. Our playoffs will take place 5-6-7 February, 2016.

When the final SECHC poll is posted in January, our first round playoff’s match-ups on 5-FEB-16 will be: 1 vs. 8, 2 vs. 7, 3 vs. 6, and 4 vs. 5

I am headed to Chicago. Happy Thanksgiving & safe travels. Here’s the new rankings, best wishes to all.
