Jimbo Fisher Says Jameis Winston Will Start At QB vs. Notre Dame, Compliance Says He's 'Fine To Play'

Earlier this week, Las Vegas sportsbooks took the Florida State-Notre Dame line off the board, with doubts surrounding Jameis Winston's eligibility. The line can apparently be put back on the board. 

During an interview with ESPN's "Mike & Mike" radio show this morning, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher told the hosts that Winston will start at quarterback for the Seminoles Saturday night against the Fighting Irish. Compliance said the 2013 Heisman winner is "fine to play." 

The Seminoles opened the week as an 11.5 or 12-point favorite, depending on the sportsbook. 

Florida State and Notre Dame are set to kick off at 8 p.m. E.T. Saturday. The game will be televised on ABC.
