USC will return its 2004 title trophy

The Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) notified USC on Thursday that it has vacated the Trojans’ 2004 national championship, and USC announced shortly thereafter that it is in the process of returning the Grantland Rice Trophy it was given after that title-winning season.

Here’s a statement from USC athletic director Pat Haden:
“Due to the NCAA penalties, we understand the actions taken by the Football Writers Association of America, and we will abide by that ruling.
