The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets put together quite a season in 2014, one that culminated in an Orange Bowl victory. The Ramblin' Wreck will enter the 2015 season as the favorites in the ACC Coastal, with their eyes set on a conference championship. This means that Paul Johnson's team will have plenty of marquee games on the 2015 schedule, and here are five Georgia Tech games that will be a must-watch.

The Yellow Jackets handled Clemson 28-6 last season, but the Tigers will still be one of the top teams in the ACC this year, and a trip to Death Valley is never easy. Georgia Tech's triple option is always tough to stop, but Clemson should also have quite a formidable offense this year, which means this game could easily turn into an entertaining shootout, in addition to having important implications in the ACC.

North Carolina may be Georgia Tech's biggest competition in the ACC Coastal Division, so this game could have huge implications with regard to the ACC title game. The Tar Heels could have an explosive offense, but may have some holes on defense, making this another game that could have a high point total that could even top the 48-43 game these teams played last year (a game that North Carolina won).

Every team in the ACC is going to play Notre Dame every few years, and this year it's Georgia Tech's turn to travel to South Bend. These teams will play early in the season, but both have high expectations for the season. The winner can make a bold statement and possibly leap up in the polls. Aside from being a matchup of two quality teams, the dichotomy of Tech's triple option and the Irish's tradition will be fascinating to watch.

2. vs. Florida State, October 24

The Yellow Jackets gave Florida State all it could handle in the ACC Championship Game last year, and now Tech gets a chance for redemption against the reigning conference champions. This isn't the same Florida State team that cruised through the ACC the past two seasons, but beating the Seminoles would be a great accomplishment for Georgia Tech, and show that the Yellow Jackets are ready to win an ACC title.

Last year's clash between these two Peach State rivals was one of the most compelling games in college football, making the encore must-see TV. The Bulldogs have grown accustomed to being king's of the state, so after losing to the Yellow Jackets last year, they'll be looking to get some revenge. Even if both teams are preparing for a conference title game the following week, a distinct possibility, each side will want to win this game badly.
