USC strong safety Darnell Bing is one of the best in the nation at his position. The hard-hitting Bing will have a huge responsibility containing Fresno State tailbacks Wendell Mathis and Bryson Sumlin. Bing will be the best strong safety Fresno State has faced since James Sanders last year in practice.
Like Sanders, Bing will likely leave early for the NFL, but would like nothing more than shut up the 'Dogs. Fresno State needs to neutralize his presence on defense if they are going to have any to pull out the win.
