Going 7-6 last season and winning a bowl game, Georgia Tech was another one of the ACC's surprise teams. Now that the bar is raised, can the Yellow Jackets take another step forward in 2024?

Blossoming star QB Haynes King is back to lead a modernized offense as the program puts its tradition of running the option further in the past. In fact, six times last year, the offense topped the 30-point mark.

Former Duke defensive coordinator Tyler Santucci has to fix the defense though. Last season, the Jackets gave up an average of 39.3 points per game in their six losses.
