The Syracuse Orange fell hard this week after a massive loss to rival Johns Hopkins. SU now sits at either 12 or 13 depending on the poll. The Jays picked up a huge number of spots for its win. The Duke Blue Devils continue on in the top three while the Notre Dame Fighting Irish rise following a two goal win over the Denver Pioneers. The North Carolina Tar Heels were another loser this week after an embarrassing 12-6 loss to the Hofstra Pride. The final ACC team, the Virginia Cavaliers, which stayed in the lower, top ten of each poll.
