Alabama QB AJ McCarron's Girlfriend, Katherine Webb, Steals Show During Crimson Tide's BCS Championship Win

Alabama cruised to victory over Notre Dame last night in the BCS Championship. But despite the on-field heroics of quarterback AJ McCarron, it was his girlfriend (pictured above) that ended up stealing the show.

Katherine Webb, a 23-year-old former Miss Alabama USA, was shown by the ESPN cameras alongside McCarron's mother early in the game with the Crimson Tide already up 14-0.

Longtime play-by-play man Brent Musburger was awestruck, saying to ex-quarterback/broadcast teammate Kirk Herbstreit that, "You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman. Wow."

He went on...

"If you're a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pop."

As for Webb, her popularity instantly exploded on Twitter during the game, with her followers reportedly jumping from 2,300 to more than 100,000.
