Auburn: We deserve piece of title

FWAA executive director Steve Richardson told reporters last week that about 20 members will have three choices when they receive ballots:

• Retain Southern Cal as national champion.

• Remove Southern Cal and keep the title vacant.

• Remove Southern Cal and give the title to another school.

Count several members of the 2004 undefeated Auburn team as believers they should own a piece of that title. Auburn went 13-0, while USC defeated Oklahoma in the BCS title game 55-19.
