Katherine Webb Nervous About Alabama-Auburn Game

This Saturday is going to be a first for Katherine Webb, and she’s pretty nervous. Webb will be attending the Iron Bowl for the first time.

For those who may be a bit unaware, the Iron Bowl is the annual game played by rivals the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Auburn Tigers.

Webb will have a difficult time because she attended Auburn University, but her boyfriend, star quarterback AJ McCarron, plays for Alabama.

The former Miss Alabama USA can often be seen in the stands cheering on McCarron and the Crimson Tide, and it looks as if this Saturday will be no different.

Last week Webb told USA TODAY Sports, “This is the first actual game, Iron Bowl, that I will be attending. I don’t know what to expect and I’m really nervous.”

It seems a bit odd that Webb, who graduated from Auburn in 2011, has never actually been to the Iron Bowl, but it’s true. Webb said, “I didn’t get to go to the Iron Bowl whenever I was in school because I ended up having to sell my student ticket because I was running low on cash.”

Webb isn’t nervous about actually attending the game.

Said Webb, “Even in my experience at Auburn, it’s been very, very rare to see fans that have been rude or anything like that.” She added, “I’m not nervous about the fans. Of course I want to see AJ have that fourth championship ring, so I really want them to do well. That’s what I’m nervous about. I’m not nervous about his talent or abilities as a player. Of course, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about the outcome.”

It should be quite an exciting game. Alabama has an 11-0 record, while Auburn has a 10-0 record. The winner will play in Atlanta for the SEC Championship.

If Alabama wins, this could lead McCarron to his fourth national championship ring.

“Honestly, I don’t know what to expect. AJ just in his protective nature, we talked about it (Wednesday) night. And he was like, ‘I’m concerned. I don’t know what the fans are gonna do.’ And I’m like, ‘It’s OK. I’ll be sweet, genuine and nice like I always am if anything were to happen,’’ said Webb.

You can watch the game this Saturday, November 30, at 3:30 p.m. EST on CBS.

    God, she sounds so fake.

    What I want to see is Alabama get investigated for steroids and paying its players. Every other program in the country would be investigated but not Alabama. Heck, one program got investigated because a student athlete washed her car from a hose that was on campus. How in the world Alabama does not get investigated when several former players admit taking money is beyond me.

    Take McCarron and put him on any other team — say Texas Am where he would have to score 40 points a game to just stay in the game — well, he would then be just a very average QB and I doubt Webb would be with him. Manziel is by far the best QB in the SEC, followed by Metzenberger, followed by Murray. I am not even a Texas AM, LSU, or Georgia fan.

    Four championships? Please. Give us a true 8 game or 16 game playoff and lets see how many championships Alabama wins.

    Katherine Webb represents the classic beauty of a southern belle. She is beautiful and educated. However, she is slightly older than AJ who is still in college. The divorce rate is highest for couples who marry before the age of 25. The southeast has a pattern of young marriages and very high divorce rates – 2nd only to Las Vegas. I would encourage Ms. Webb to go to graduate school and work for a few years rather than rushing into marriage. In 20 years Katherine will be middle-aged, and at that point in time a Hall of Fame quarterback such as AJ will STILL HAVE MANY chances to be with much younger women in their early 20s. The odds are stacked against Webb since age is not friendly to middle-aged couples. Elite 80s football players such as Herschel Walker and Brian Bosworth divorced their 1st wives. They are now with much younger women in their 20s while both are in deep middle-age. AJ and Katherine may seem like the couple of the moment in the backdrop of the Iron Bowl, but in 20 years I’ll bet AJ will be with a much younger women just like Herschel and the “Boz.” Ms. Webb should be cognizant of this reality of the “First Wives Club” – see the movie from 1996.
