Best Answer

Ohio State was under NCAA sanction for multiple rule violations; the sanctions were handed down in 2011, to be effective during the 2012 season. In addition to scholarship limits, Ohio State was not allowed to play in either the Big Ten Championship Game or any bowl game-including the BCS National Championahip Game. Ohio State was eligible to win the national championship awarded by the Associated Press, but it was Alabama that was voted the No. 1 team in the final AP Poll.
