USC stripped of 2004 BCS National Championship

Last year Reggie Bush also relinquished his Heisman Trophy over the same situation.

Southern California has been stripped of its 2004 football national title by the Bowl Championship Series, the latest consequences of N.C.A.A. violations that had already cost Reggie Bush his Heisman Trophy and kept the Trojans from being eligible for bowl games for the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
The violations surrounded improper benefits given to Bush during his Trojans career as well as those received by the basketball player O.J. Mayo. That the scandal stretched over two sports led the N.C.A.A. to cite the university for a lack of institutional control. That cost Mike Garrett his job as the university’s athletic director.
