Southern Football Predictions

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

South Carolina (-9) at Vanderbilt
Winner straight up – South Carolina
Winner with points – Vanderbilt
Comment – I expect the Cocks to play better. If they don't they will lose the game. I don't think they will cover the nearly ten-point line…

Georgia Tech (+7.5) at Boston College
Winner straight up – Boston College
Winner with points – Georiga Tech
Comment – Take Tech and hold on. I don't think BC is that great – maybe Tech can score some points and get you a win. That last half point is tricky…

The Citadel (No Line) at Clemson
Winner straight up – Clemson
Winner with points – No Line
Comment – I will never buy into Clemson again. I am over them. That effort was pitiful. PITIFUL…

Northwestern (-6) at Duke

Winner with points – Duke
Comment – Duke can win this game, but they won't…

W. Carolina (No Line) at Florida State
Winner straight up – Florida State
Winner with points – No Line
Comment – Noles hope Miami and Florida can both lose this weekend somehow…

Maryland (-14) vs. MTSU

Miami (+21) at Florida

Central Michigan (+23) at Georgia

Winner with points – Central Michigan
Comment – Be honest – did you think Georgia looked like the #1 team in the country? Week one rankings don't matter anyway, and the winner of the Ohio State-USC game is going to be number one next week no matter what. Dawgs need to get ready for the Cocks – that's all that matters right now…

Parker Morgan's Lock of the Week
Central Michigan (+23) at Georgia

Comment – CMU drew about 19,000 in their home opener in a 30,000 seat stadium. The crowd and team will be jacked - look for the Dawgs to roll a la Clemson and Kansas last year on the Chippewas.

Straight up: 15 of 20 or 75%
Points: 7 of 13 or 54%
