Could become the first player in the 75 year history of the Heisman Trophy to lose that award.
Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Heisman Trophy trust is expected to strip the running back of the top award by the end of the month.
The -- is investigating whether Reggie Bush took gifts while still in college.
If so that was a break of NCAA rules earlier this year the NCAA retro actively ruled Reggie Bush was ineligible for parts of the 2004 season.
When he led the trojans to a national title and the 2005 season when he won the Heisman.
The -- -- record on Duncan Hunter is here with this with one of the Heisman people saying about this -- we just.
Got an email -- from William -- he's the president of the Heisman Trophy trust and he essentially denied.
That any decision has been made telling us and I'm go to quote hit the status of the USC -- matter remains unchanged.
-- -- reports to the contrary are inaccurate he also referred us to a July statement which said and I'm quoting again.
The trust will be considering the issues raised in the USC Reggie Bush -- -- -- to reaching a decision will publish it.
But due to the complex issues involved and the trust's desire to reach an appropriate decision.
No definitive timetable has been established so Reggie Bush may be losing the Heisman he may be keeping it most expert chip -- will know in the next couple days to -- Improper gifts right along is the course of his state USC yet these are the allegations that Reggie Bush and his family benefited from lavish gifts from two would be sports market as those gates apparently include hotel stays.
Limo trips a new suit when Reggie Bush picked up the Heisman Trophy they also apparently included a rent free home for his family.
But one sports illustrated expert I spoke to today.

And at the very least all right he won the Heisman in 2005.
Vince Young was the runner up that you're right does that mean he in theory when we have ourselves what would he get it.
If Reggie Bush was stripped of it Vince Young that could get it he -- the run up but very distant runner up.
In 2005 he did lead to -- homes to victory over USC.
In the BCS championship game.
That -- but Vince Young himself has said.
He does not want to he does not want to get a Heisman that way.
Again most people in sports believe that what would happen is that they would simply in the true in the woods of the Heisman Trophy trust.
Vacate the trophy for that -- you know the wood chip.
No one would get it.
All right Jonathan --
