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

1. LSU – Best team is the South… for this week at least…
2. Virginia Tech – Need to play better than last week to have any hope…
3. Florida – Still want to see Tebow against a legit D1 school…
4. Georgia – Game with Carolina vital to season…
5. Clemson – Looked great in the big game (what about the little game?)…
6. Georgia Tech - Jackets looked like ACC contenders against Irish...
7. Arkansas – Boring opner…
8. Auburn – Need to pick up - now. Tigers did not look good…
9. Tennessee – Loss to Cal was not a surprise…
10. Florida State – Played better in the 2nd half, but probably lost the division in Death Valley…
11. South Carolina – Didn't look good, but get Blake Mitchell back…
12. Kentucky – May struggle this week…
13. Alabama – Vandy will be a fight…
14. Miami – Should not be able to hang with Sooners…
15. Wake Forest – Can't win the ACC now...
16. Maryland – Now sure where the Turtles are right now (they've played no one)…
17. Vanderbilt – A win over the Tide would not surprise many…
18. Ole Miss – At least they started with a win…
19. Virginia – Wyoming?
20. N.C. State – Just looked bad last week…
21. Mississippi State – This is a must win for State…
22. North Carolina – A win this week would be an upset for the Heels...
23. Duke – Just not very good...
