Baylor has decided to omit UCLA's final touchdown from the Bears' 2012 Holiday Bowl history -- at least on the hardware given to the players and coaches from the game.

According to the Baylor football Twitter account, the jewelry below appears to be the commemorative ring from Baylor's 49-26 victory over UCLA in the Holiday Bowl. As you can see, the score on the ring is 49-19. It could be a mistake, but ignoring the Bruins' final touchdown could be the Bears' way of protesting a controversial call that was ruled a score in the final seconds of play.

With eight seconds remaining, trailing 49-19, UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley completed a 29-yard pass to Logan Sweet at the five-yard line. Sweet then fought through two tacklers and stretched for the goal line as he fell to the ground and time expired. Officials ruled the play a touchdown, but Baylor fans argue he was down at the one-yard line.

It's an arrogant move, for sure. But it is the kind you can get away with after rushing for 306 yards in a rout of the Pac-12 runner-up.
