Katherine Webb ‘nervous’ about Iron Bowl game between Alabama and her alma mater
For those of you who are keeping track at home, it would appear that Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron and his girlfriend Katherine Webb are still together. There have been a number of rumors floating around about college football’s favorite couple breaking up over the past few months, but Webb has still been attending McCarron’s games with his mom and awaiting victory smooches.
During an interview with USA Today earlier this week, Webb spoke about the upcoming Iron Bowl game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Auburn. Believe it or not, the Auburn alum has never been to an Iron Bowl game.
“This is the first actual game, Iron Bowl, that I will be attending,” Webb said. “I don’t know what to expect and I’m really nervous. I didn’t get to go to the Iron Bowl whenever I was in school because I ended up having to sell my student ticket because I was running low on cash.”
Oh, how the times have changed. Webb has become pretty famous since Brent Musburger introduced her to the world last year during the BCS National Championship Game, so I’m sure she has plenty of extra cash laying around. Webb said McCarron is worried about opposing fans potentially being cruel to her, but she’s just concerned about the outcome of the game.
“Honestly, I don’t know what to expect,” Webb explained. “AJ just in his protective nature, we talked about it (Wednesday) night. And he was like, ‘I’m concerned. I don’t know what the fans are gonna do.’ And I’m like, ‘It’s OK. I’ll be sweet, genuine and nice like I always am if anything were to happen.’
“I’m not nervous about the fans. Of course I want to see AJ have that fourth championship ring, so I really want them to do well. That’s what I’m nervous about. I’m not nervous about his talent or abilities as a player. Of course, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about the outcome.”
This year, the outcome of the Iron Bowl could ultimately determine which team gets to play for a national championship. Our advice? Never bet against Nick Saban.
