The Bowl Championship Series stripped Southern California of its 2004 title on Monday, wiping the Trojans' 55-19 victory over Oklahoma in the 2005 Orange Bowl from the record books and leaving that season without a BCS champion.

The NCAA ruled that star tailback Reggie Bush received improper extra benefits during those seasons and was ineligible when he played.

The Trojans will not have to relinquish the Associated Press national championship.

The BCS also said the Trojans must vacate their participation in 2006 Rose Bowl, a 41-38 loss to Texas.
