Burfict gets revenge on Barkley

By Ted Miller

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Vontaze Burfict: Perfect gentleman.

With USC on Arizona State's 12-yard line after a long punt return, Burfict stepped in front of a Matt Barkley pass and returned his first career interception 36 yards -- where he was tackled by Barkley, who called him dirty this week.

Burfict immediately ran at Barkley. And helped him up.

And then Arizona State drove 48 yards for at touchdown that put them up 21-6 with two minutes left in the half.

Burfict makes a good play. Then he makes a smart play. And his team surges.
