BCS Strips USC of National Championship

The Bowl Championship Series has stripped Southern California of its 2004 title and will leave that season without a BCS champion.

In this Jan. 4, 2005 file photo, Southern California quarterback Matt Leinart rubs the head of coach Pete Carroll during the trophy presentation after beating Oklahoma 55-19 in the Orange Bowl at Pro Player Stadium in Miami.
The announcement Monday is no surprise.
BCS officials had said USC was in danger of having its championship vacated after the Trojans were hit with heavy NCAA sanctions last year for rules violations committed during the 2004 and '05 seasons.
USC appealed the sanctions, which included a two-year ban from postseason play and a loss of 30 scholarships over three seasons, and the BCS waited until the NCAA ruled on the appeal to make a decision about its championship.

Probably not ... it may just be vacated.. or can it be?

Or can you say Auburn? That's the year they got robbed.

Capstone Report My vote: Give Auburn the 04 title

And I guess LSU is the lone wolf in 2003 as well?
