Southern Football Predictions

Southern Football Predictions

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

1. LSU – Still better than everyone else - for now…
2. South Carolina – Tricky game with Vandy...
3. Tennessee – Starting to look good...
4. Kentucky – Suddenly up-and-down Cats have to be up this week, too…
5. Virginia Tech – Need to top BC next Thursday night…
6. Florida - Need to get going - fast...
7. Auburn – Looking like the team to beat in West all of the sudden…
8. Georgia – A win is a win is a win - and a needed off week is a needed off week is a needed off week…
9. Florida State – Just not that great...
10. Alabama – Not great, but in the mix in the West because they've not played anyone over there…
11. Virginia - Team to beat right now on their side of the ACC...
12. Clemson – Doesn't look like Bowden is going to make it after this season…
13. Arkansas – Can still ravage the East - too bad Hogs are in the West...
14. Wake Forest – Win over Noles was not a surprise...
15. Georgia Tech – Looking better, but have looked bad so far…
16. Mississippi State – Could upset West Virginia on the road - I would not be stunned by that...
17. Maryland – Still underwhelming for me...
18. Vanderbilt – Have to win games like last week's vs. Georgia...
19. Ole Miss – Have to turn the corner at some point - or do they?
20. North Carolina – Getting better, but still have a ways to go...
21. NC State – Cowboy up and beat ECU…
22. Miami – COME ON MAN - HAVE SOME PRIDE...
23. Duke – Off week and Devils are the worst in the South (Miami looming)...
