The Baylor football team was unhappy with officiating in its Holiday Bowl game last December. And somehow, despite beating UCLA 49-26, the university is apparently not over it yet.
But they may, in time, forget what the actual score was because the university had the rings made with the score they believe more accurately reflects the game:

The play in dispute came in the waning seconds of the game when UCLA QB Brett Hundley fired off a pass to Logan Sweet, who scored a touchdown. But Baylor (and many fans) believe video shows Sweet never actually made it to the end zone.
The score, at the time, even got an asterisk in the Dallas Morning News.
"The team really had 26 points, but how often do wide receivers get a touchdown called when they are tackled at the two yard line?" Baylor coach Art Briles said after the game.
