Update: ESPN contacted the Heisman Trust and that Bush report is false. No decision on Bush has been reached and trust won't meet again for a bout a month..11:03 am

The Heisman Trophy Trust is expected to strip  the New Orleans Saints and former USC running back Reggie Bush of his 2005 Heisman Trophy and leave the award vacant, Yahoo Sports reported.

Two sources close to the trust said the organization is completing an investigation and will agree with the NCAA's finding that Bush accepted improper  benefits while at USC and was ineligible during the 2005 season, according to the report.

Bush would become the first player in the 75-year history of the Heisman Trophy to have the awards taken away.

Bush is expected to play this Thursday as the New Orleans Saints play the Minnesota Vikings in the Superdome.  The game is pitted as the NFC championship game, which the Saints won earlier this year enroute to the Super Bowl.
