Despite posting its second consecutive undefeated, untied season, the Nittany Lions did not have a shot at the national championship. President Richard Nixon awarded the national championship to the winner of the December 6 matchup between the Texas Longhorns and the Arkansas Razorbacks, then ranked at the top of the polls, despite no bowl games having been played yet. Paterno, at the 1973 commencement, was quoted saying, "I'd like to know how could the president know so little about Watergate in 1973 and so much about college football in 1969?"cite web|url=http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06321/739083-198.stm|last=Anderson|first=Shelly|title=Research shows Nixon hurt '69 Lions|publisher=Pittsburgh Post-Gazette|date=2006-11-17|accessdate=2007-01-31]
