AJ McCarron's girlfriend Katherine Webb gets Brent Musburger's attention during BCS title game

Miss Alabama USA 2012 Katherine Webb, who is dating University of Alabama starting quarterback AJ McCarron, got some airtime on ESPN early in Monday's BCS Championship Game.

Webb, who graduated from Auburn University, was in Florida to watch McCarron and his teammates play against Notre Dame.

About 30 minutes into the game, the camera turned to Webb, and we got these, um, interesting comments from sportscaster Brent Musburger.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Musburger’s comments started a "Twitter firestorm." Webb's Twitter follower count rocketed, shooting past McCarron and past the 100,000 threshold by the end of the game.

Prior to the game, Miss Alabama had about 2,000 followers, according to Sporting News.
