Cheer 'Lubricate the Trojans'

Comment: Sometime during the late 60's or early 70's, the University of
Southern California was playing at Notre Dame. Both teams were highly
ranked and the game had NCAA national championship implications. It was
the featured game on TV for that reason. While the announcers were
setting the stage during the pregame show, the camera was panning across
the stadium. Just as it showed the Notre Dame student section, a large
banner was unrolled from the upper deck that read "Lubricate the Trojans."
This story has been told to me by several football fans. I believe the
game was televised by ABC. Any truth to this story?
