USC didn't endear itself to football fans when it claimed it had a 4-0 record against Texas, even though the Trojans suffered a brutal loss to the Longhorns in the 2006 Rose Bowl. The Trojans' record in the 2005 season was vacated, because of NCAA violations and former USC star Reggie Bush was declared retroactively ineligible. That means their 41-38 loss to the Longhorns in Pasadena doesn't count in their overall record. Cyclist Lance Armstrong, who is an avid Texas fan (and knows a thing or seven about vacated victories), called out USC for saying it was undefeated against the Longhorns and added their treatment of Bush was awful. It all was included in a tweet that read, in part, "We were there. You lost the game fair and square" but also including some NSFW language. Texas and USC face each other Saturday for the first time since that epic '06 Rose Bowl in which the Longhorns won the national title by scoring 18 points in the fourth quarter of a matchup of undefeated teams.
