When Oregon is on offense, take your eyes off the Ducks and watch number 7, ASU's all-American linebacker, Vontaze Burfict, a 6-3, 252-pound junior who has made 29 tackles (five for loss), four sacks, one interception, three pass breakups and four pass deflections.
If it comes down to the last second, the edge might go to Oregon State, which won four games this season at or near the end - an interception on the final play to seal a 17-10 victory over Arizona, a two-point conversion pass deflection with seven seconds left to defeat USC 33-31, a blocked field goal with 20 seconds remaing to beat Oregon 30-28 and taking a safety and successfully covering the ensuing kickoff in the final nine seconds to preserve a 35-32 win over Hawaii.
