Alabama University star AJ McCarron became the first quarterback ever to win back-to-back BCS National Championships.
The final against Notre Dame was so one-sided that attention soon turned to his girlfriend, Katherine Webb who was watching anxiously in the crowd.
As the television cameras turned time and again to Webb, Twitter and the internet went wild.
Before the game, Webb had an estimated 2200 Twitter followers, by the end of it she was up to well over 100,000, surpassing interest in her star quarterback boyfriend.
