Southern Football Predictions

ATHENS - Dean Legge makes his weekly picks for the 23 schools in the South.

1. LSU – Tricky game with Cocks, but Tigers should be ok…
2. Florida – Wow... take that Tennessee!
3. Clemson – The top two teams are clearly the best - Tigers always screw up at some point; will it happen this week?
4. Virginia Tech – A very beatable team…
5. South Carolina – Win in Death Valley would send shockwaves…
6. Kentucky - Has played better than Georgia and Tennessee so far this season. How often is that said?
7. Alabama – Program-changin win last week - watchout for the let down…
8. Georgia – A win over Tide is very neccessary this week for program. Finger poised over panic button…
9. Florida State – Still can't score a ton…
10. Georgia Tech – Maybe Jackets aren't that great after all…
11. Arkansas – Can score, but got scored on - not a great combo…
12. Tennessee – This is not looking good. Gators paint 40 on the Vols - OUCH!
13. Miami – A chance to upset A&M tonight - but Canes are not a good team…
14. Wake Forest – Vital game for Wake vs. Terps…
15. Maryland – See above - loser might not go bowling...
16. Mississippi State – Real challange comes next week for State…
17. Vanderbilt – Still trying to get to six wins for bowl…
18. Ole Miss – See above…
19. Auburn – Something stinks, and its a tradiational SEC power (Vols need deodorant, too)
20. N.C. State – An upset over Clemson wouldn't change my mind - still a long way to go…
21. Virginia – Beat a bad Tarheel team...
22. Duke – Respectable after win over Northwestern...
23. Appalachian State – Now the Tarheels have been banished...
