Katherine Webb, Girlfriend of Alabama Quarterback AJ McCarron, Steals The Show
The University of Alabama won its 2nd straight BCS National Championship on Monday night, and though star quarterback AJ McCarron threw four touchdown passes in the 42-14 win over Notre Dame, the real winner of the evening was his girlfriend, Miss Alabama Katherine Webb.

Near the end of the first quarter the cameras turned away from the field and into the stands where Webb was standing, and ESPN analysts Brett Mussberger and Kirk Herbstreit gushed about Webb during the broadcast.
“A.J.’s doing some things right down in Tuscaloosa,” Herbstreit said.
Webb’s social media presence exploded after the TV time. She started the night with 2,300 Twitter followers. She now has over 140,000, or 40,000 more than McCarron. At one point Miami Heat superstar LeBron James even joined the bandwagon; however he later unfollowed her, Sporting News reports.
Webb, 23, graduated from heated Crimson Tide rival Auburn University in 2011 with a degree in Business Management and Administration. In addition to modeling, Webb is a training director for Chik-Fil-A, according to her Miss USA profile.
