Georgia Tech landed the No. 11 spot in ESPN’s ACC preseason power rankings.
The Yellow Jackets went 4-4 last season in the ACC, losing to Miami, Clemson, Virginia, and Duke.
“On paper, the Jackets should be better this year, with TaQuon Marshall and KirVonte Benson primed to have even bigger seasons, and a more experienced offensive line ready to lead the way,” ESPN writers Andrea Adelson and David M. Hale wrote. “The schedule is difficult, and one reason why it's hard to project just how good this team can be in 2018.”
The Yellow Jackets open up against Alcorn State on September 1 at 12:30 p.m.
Here is ESPN’s ACC preseason power rankings:
4. Boston College
5. Virginia Tech
6. NC State
8. Wake Forest
11. Georgia Tech
