FSU redshirt freshman LB Matthew Thomas will play against Notre Dame on Saturday.

Thomas was just reinstated from a suspension which began in early September for a "violation of team rules." The school's linebacker unit might be the worst part of the defense. "He is a tremendous special teams guy because he has range and size, hard to block and can cover," Jimbo Fisher said. "He can rush off the edge and he can blitz the middle and he can play middle backer." Expect the Seminoles to spy Everett Golson on a number of snaps.
