Glass is a junior linebacker and the fourth-leading tackler on the team. Jones, a sophomore linebacker, has appeared in two games this year.

Junior defensive lineman Trevarius Clark was charged and arrested with vehicular manslaughter on October 29 stemming from a fatal accident in April. The arrest was a result of the investigation into the death of 36-year old Tiffany Harris. Clark was driving the car that struck and killed Harris in April while she walked along a Mississippi road.
