Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron's play in the BCS Championship game might be overshadowed by his model girlfriend, Katherine Webb, who ESPN cameras spotted early Monday night sitting next to McCarron's mother, Dee Dee Bonner.

ESPN commentator Brent Musburger had an awkward moment when commenting on Webb during the live broadcast.

"You see that lovely lady there, she does go to Auburn, but she's also Miss Alabama and that's AJ McCarron's girlfriend," he said.

"You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman. Wow."

Kirk Herbstreit then chimed in and said, "AJ's doing some things right."

Webb became Miss Alabama in January before finishing in the top 10 in the Miss USA competition in June. According to her Instagram account, she's met Tim Tebow.  The tweets that followed Musburger's comments told the story: Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray @aaronmurray11: "Aj McCarrons girlfriend needs to become a Dawg fan #dawgsontop" Donte Stallworth @DonteStallworth: "And now 'AJ McCarrons' is trending number one right now...not because of his play but because of his ol lady.... And Brent Musburger" @richarddeitsch: The age difference between Brent Musburger (ESPN announcer) and Katherine Webb (AJ McCarron's girlfreind) is 50. Steve Politi ?@StevePoliti: "Brent Musberger: Making college women uncomfortable since 1978." Arizona Cardinals' Darnell Dockett: @ddockett: "Aye @_KatherineWebb hit me (240) 464-4150 when game over, lets go to wing stop then King of diamond." Jeff Passan ?@JeffPassan: "Sources: A.J. McCarron's girlfriend to seek restraining order from Brent Musburger at halftime." Miami Heat's LeBron James @KingJames: "I blame the BCS for this! Call Oregon and get them on a plane to Miami please!"
