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

1. LSU – Best in the South…

3. Georgia –The Yellow Jackets – then likely LSU; not an easy end-of-the-year schedule…

4. Miami – No one saw the upset to Tech coming…

5. Virginia Tech – Tide had better get it together before Auburn game…

6. Georgia Tech – Up and down; up and down – Now hated Georgia…
