The suspension puts Thomas in jeopardy of missing the final two games of the season against Cincinnati (Nov. 26) and Pittsburgh (Dec. 3).
Thomas leads the Orange in tackles (82) and is one of the Big East leaders in interceptions (6). He was also named to the preseason All-Big East Team.
Syracuse's defense has fallen off after a strong 2010 season. Currently giving up over 400 yards a game, it's a big reason the team has dropped three-straight and is in danger of missing bowl eligibility if they can't win one of their two remaining games.
