Southern Football Predictions
Kentucky Cheerleader
Posted Nov 25, 2004

Dean Legge makes his weekly picks for the 23 schools in the South, and bowl predictions!

1. Auburn – Should play for national title after win over Tennessee in SEC title game

2. Georgia – Dawgs should win against in-state Georgia Tech – what bowl awaits?

3. LSU – Friday’s game against Arkansas won’t be an easy one

4. Virginia Tech – Will likely win the ACC – or at least share it. Tech plays Virginia this weekend.

5. Tennessee – Vols are lucky – to beat Georgia earlier this season, and to beat Vandy last weekend.

7. Virginia – Still have a shot at the ACC, but it won’t happen

8. Miami – Canes control their own destiny in the ACC

9. Florida – Inspirational win over Seminoles was impressive – where has that sort of effort been all season long?

10. Florida State – Noles’ offense is the worst in years, if not decades

11. Alabama – Auburn was too much for Tide in the second half last week – now a bowl; which one?

12. North Carolina – A win over Duke and the Heels have to be considered the surprise team of the ACC this year.

13. Arkansas – Hogs need a win over LSU to get to a bowl

14. Clemson – No bowl? Tigers didn’t deserve it after their worthless fight against South Carolina. Pathetic.

15. Georgia Tech – Georgia Tech will slip into a bowl game – after a loss to Georgia.

16. South Carolina – Duke? Loss to Clemson was bad – the fight was worse.

17. Wake Forest – Game against Maryland is worthless for fans

18. Maryland – Not a good year at all

19. Duke – North Carolina was too much

20. North Carolina StateEast Carolina awaits

21. Mississippi State – Rebels are this weekend in Egg Bowl.

22. Kentucky – Cats will get drilled by UT.

23. Vanderbilt – Close does not count – start winning winnable games
