USC National Championship Stripped Away

6 Jun

On Monday the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) officially stripped away the 2004 National Championship from the University of Southern California. This announcement came after a meeting of the NCAA’s Presidential Oversight Committee.

The title will be vacated for that season leaving the record books empty for the 2004 season.

USC Athletic Director Pat Haden said in a statement, “This was not an unexpected outcome. We will comply with all requirements mandated by the result of this BCS vote.”

The NCAA ruled a few weeks ago that NCAA USC’s appeal to have sanctions reduced. The Trojans will serve a two-year ban on postseason play and the loss of 30 scholarships.
