LOS ANGELES - FILE: Reggie Bush #5 of the USC Trojans prays in the middle of the field before the game against the California Golden Bears on October 9, 2004 at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California. It was reported that the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) announced that it has stripped the University of Southern California of its football national championship in 2004, a repercussion tied to the ineligibility of former Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush June 6, 2011.
