Badgers women's hockey bench

The Badgers watch play during a game against Lindenwood.

The University of Wisconsin women's hockey team has fallen out of the top spot in the national rankings for the first time in four months.

After being swept on the road by Ohio State last weekend, the Badgers fell to No. 2 in the Division I women's poll on Monday.

UW started the season second in the poll before taking over the top spot on Oct. 2.

The Badgers (26-3-1, 17-2-1 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) lost consecutive games for the first time since Feb. 19-20, 2016, at Minnesota.

Defending national champion Clarkson took over the top spot on Monday, with Boston College third and also gaining first-place votes.

Ohio State moved up one spot to fifth, while Minnesota is seventh.

The Badgers play at Minnesota Duluth on Friday and Saturday.
