Last night, the University of Alabama embarrassed Notre Dame in the BCS National Championship game, defeating the Fighting Irish 42-14 in a matchup that wasn’t even as close as the score signals – and that’s saying a lot. Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron had a fantastic game, throwing for 264 yards and 4 touchdowns – but it was his girlfriend that stole some of the spotlight.
Katherine Webb, who owns the title of Miss Alabama, was present at the game. She also happens to be McCarron’s girlfriend.
Miss Webb stole the show during the first quarter of last night’s game when the camera panned to her and McCarron’s mother sitting in the stands. Commentators Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit went a little over the top on the “whoas” and “wows,” according to the majority of the Twitterverse.
“If you’re a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pop,” said Musburger. Of course, the logic here is that star quarterbacks often get the girl. The girl. We know what you mean Brent, but tone it down a little:
That brief exposure was enough to help Webb amass 90,000+ Twitter followers in three hours. As of this morning, she currently boasts 132,000+ followers and that number is climbing.
So extremely blessed… @10AJMcCarron. Congrats to Alabama and making history! #BCSChamps
Miss Alabama and her champion QB boyfriend. If that isn’t as American as apple pie, I don’t know what it.
