USC band played "The Victors" after win vs. OSU?

Sorry if this has already been posted.... I heard on 97.1 the ticket this afternoon that there is a rumor that USC's band played "The Victors" at the end of the OSU game. Can anyone confirm this?

Not to be contrary, but the reason they play that song over and over again is because they score a lot of touchdowns. Here's hoping people accuse the M band of a limited repertoire after this season.

I'm sure we have some current or former U of M band members that can confirm this, but I've heard that both MSU and OSU fans are just absolutely terrible towards our band members in their stadiums. If they gave it to the USC band half as bad as they give it to us, they deserve this bit of salt in their wounds.

The USC band is a bunch of classless douchebags and this would just be another instance of them being what they are. John Williams (wrote the music for Star Wars and a bunch of other awesome stuff) once did a special arrangement of the Star Spangled Banner for the pregame of a Rose Bowl and during rehersal for it he corrected some members of the USC band for playing part of it incorrectly and they responded by booing and hissing him.

I do know that they did play "All Right Now" at the end of the game, meaning that even if they didn't play the Victors, they did play another school's "Fight Song" as it were.

... that it has gotten to the point where USC has to play the victors at an end of an OSU game, since we haven't been performing well as of late in the series.

Tide's a turning, though. Tide's a turning.

I didn't hear it and I was pretty close to the band after the game. That doesn't mean it didn't happen, but I can tell you firsthand I did not hear it after people started filing out.

Isn't there some sort of a healthy rivalry between the MMB and the OSU band? That's what some articles/books/news pieces on the rivalry make it seem like, that they hate but respect each other.
