From the BCS Website

Here in the framework the BCS will utilize in determining whether the Trogans' 2005 Championship should be vacated (from the BCS website)(emphasis added)

While no final determination can be made without a concrete set of facts, in evaluating whether an institution's participation in a BCS bowl game should be vacated, the conferences and institutions will be guided by the following principles:

1. When the NCAA or a conference makes a finding of one or more major violations of its rules and determines that the violations provided an institution with a material competitive advantage, we will presume that vacation of participation in a BCS bowl game is warranted.

2. When the NCAA or a conference makes a finding of violations, whether major or secondary, and imposes a sanction of forfeiture or vacation of contests in which an ineligible student-athlete participated, we will presume that vacation of participation in a BCS bowl game is warranted if: (a) the student-athlete was ineligible at the time the bowl game was played and participated in such game; or (b) taking account of the forfeiture or vacation of any regular season contests mandated by NCAA or conference sanctions, it appears unlikely that such institution would have been eligible for selection to play in a BCS bowl game.

3. When the NCAA or a conference makes a finding of only secondary violations and determines that: (a) a student-athlete, while technically ineligible for participation in athletic contests during the period of violation, should be reinstated or be eligible for reinstatement; or (b) the institution should not be subject to the sanction of forfeiture or vacation of games in which such student-athlete participated, we will presume that vacation of participation in a BCS bowl game is not warranted.

4. When the NCAA or a conference makes a finding of only secondary violations and determines that the violations provided the institution with no material competitive advantage, then the we will presume that vacation of participation in a BCS bowl game is not warranted.

Based on their criteria, we should have an announcement anytime.
