Only one major college football team finished the season undefeated and it wasn't Alabama. So do the Ohio State Buckeyes deserve a share of the national title?
"That's a tough question," Ohio State coach Urban Meyer told USA TODAY Sports. "After today's performance it sure is clear who the best team in the country is. I don't think there's a shot but I don't really understand how it works either."
The Buckeyes still could grab a share of the national title if they are ranked No. 1 in The Associated Press poll, though that scenario appears unlikely. The Buckeyes were ranked No. 3 in the AP behind Notre Dame and Alabama respectively entering the BCS title game. Ohio State (12-0) was barred from postseason play due to NCAA sanctions.
