If you watched Alabama’s dominating win over Notre Dame in Monday night’s BCS championship game, you probably noticed the game’s biggest star... off the field.

“You couldn’t help but see Katherine Webb, the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron because ESPN showed her over and over again.”

But it’s not just the camera shots of Webb, who happens to be Miss Alabama, getting people talking this morning... It’s the commentary from ESPN’s play-by-play guy Brent Musburger.

“When you’re a quarterback at Alabama, you see that lovely lady there, she does go to Auburn, she’s Miss Alabama, but she’s also A.J. McCarron’s girlfriend.... You quarterbacks get all the good looking women. What a woman. Wow! Woah! So if you’re a youngster at Alabama, start getting the football out and throwing it around the backyard with pops.

And the Fox and Friends morning show hosts were having fun with Musburger’s comments.

“Oh by the way, I missed four plays talking about his girlfriend, Miss Alabama. It’s unbelievable. Brent Musburger is 91 and he’s still going off on Miss Alabama.”

Musburger is actually 73 years old and MSNBC’s Willie Geist says for that reason, he deserves a pass.

“You get the Musburger pass on that one. He’s been around awhile. So you can drool over people in the audience? It’s not something I would do.”

As for Miss Alabama -- her amount of Twitter followers escalated exponentially throughout Monday’s game.

“In fact, her Twitter followers went from 2,300 to over 100,000. She got 90,000 Twitter followers during the course of the game. She now has more Twitter followers than A.J. McCarron himself.”

According to AOL Sporting News, even NBA star LeBron James followed Webb, though he’s since unfollowed her.

Webb and McCarron have been dating for about a month. McCarron led the Crimson Tide to it’s third BCS national title in four years, defeating Notre Dame 42-14.
