Vacated NCAA National Championships

Posted by Andrew McKillop on June 7, 2011

Site News: I’m going to be tackling a major project, thus there won’t be any updates until next week.

Yesterday the USC Trojans became the first major college football program to have a national championship vacated by the NCAA.  I decided to research other programs that have had national championships vacated by the NCAA.

* USC will hold onto their 2004 Associated Press National Championship, however they have lost their BCS title.  The later being the most recognizable national championship selector in college football today.

Some interesting notes:

  • USC is the first school in the NCAA to have to vacate national championships in two different sports (1926 OTF, 2004 FB).
  • USC now joins Arkansas as the only schools that have had to vacate two national championships.
  • USC is only the second NCAA football program to have to vacate a national championship (Mississippi College the other).
