As we draw ever nearer to the start of the college football season, the 2015 Preseason Coaches' Poll was released on Thursday, featuring Georgia Tech at #17. It is the first time they've been ranked in the preseason poll since 2010, when they were also ranked #17 by the coaches. The Jackets are the third-highest ranked team in the ACC, behind Florida State (#8) and Clemson (#12).

Four of Georgia Tech's opponents are ranked in the poll -- FSU, georgia (#9), Notre Dame (#11), and Clemson (#12). Additionally, four more received votes but didn't make it into the rankings -- Virginia Tech, Duke, Miami, and North Carolina.
