The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets appear in the Sporting News Top 25 poll, checking in at number 21.
Here's TSN's Georgia Tech analysis:
If the passing game develops with the newbies and the defense improves for third-year coordinator Al Groh, the Yellow Jackets could definitely push Virginia Tech in the Coastal Division. The schedule is a bit odd, with ACC contests in three of the first four games. If nothing else, the Yellow Jackets will know pretty quickly where they stand.
Coach Paul Johnson is encouraged by the improvement of individual players, including quarterback Tevin Washington. Right guard Omoregie Uzzi is likely to be an early-round draft selection.
Arch rival UGA has been ranked high as #5 in preseason polls but is only #14 in this Sporting News poll.
