I believe it is the number worn by the quarterback.

.......... Coincidentally, Greg McElroy wore 12 2007-2010

Ironically, they [ALA ]also own 12 National Championships; 2009's make it 13 total National Championships. So maybe the helmet will change to 13. If not, then it is likely due to it being Joe Namath's number- QB from the 60's still famous today.
