Robert Griffin III’s wife Rebecca did not want to be on national TV (GIF)

Robert Griffin III attended the Fiesta Bowl on Wednesday to watch his alma mater Baylor face UCF. His wife, Rebecca, is also a Baylor alum and accompanied him to the game. But when RG3 was shown on TV by ESPN, she wanted no part of the shot. Becca didn’t even look at the camera, and she left her husband hanging as she exited stage right. All RG3 could do was laugh.

Robert Griffin III makes ‘Pop Rocks and Tootsie Pops’ music video

Robert Griffin III got married to college girlfriend Rebecca Liddicoat on Saturday night in Denver, and he decided to celebrate by sharing a hilarious music video on his Facebook page.

Griffin posted the music video seen above to his Facebook page on Sunday, saying “Check out the first official video release of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Griffin III.”

The song is called “Pop Rocks and Tootsie Pops” and it was created by “Candy Shop Producers.” As noted by Dan Steinberg, the video was actually posted to YouTube in March, but it only had just over 1,000 views. Maybe RG3 decided that now was the time to take “Pop Rocks and Tootsie Pops” global.

The song admittedly has a really catchy hook. RG3 is seen wearing a mask and beanie on his head, and he has a tie over his adidas sweatshirt. His wife and another girl, whom we believe is Rebecca’s sister, Lindsey, appear to be the backup dancers. They both have headphones around their neck and sunglasses on their face. Throughout the song, they talk about two outstanding candies that almost everyone loves — Pop Rocks and Tootsie Pops.

RG3 talked about the video on Twitter and called it “good clean fun”:

Robert Griffin III Rebecca Liddicoat wedding

Robert Griffin III got married to his college girlfriend, Rebecca Liddicoat, in Denver on Saturday night.

The wedding became big news among Washington Redskins fans, who went pretty crazy buying gifts for DC’s favorite athlete and his bride. The fans hit up the wedding registries and sent the stud quarterback multiple gifts. RG3 and his wife did thank them all with personalized notes.

We’ve been tracking the events tied with this affair since news of their July wedding emerged in May. We learned that DC rapper Wale would be performing at the wedding, and we shared some pictures from RG3’s bachelor party in Las Vegas.

Giffin had the rehearsal dinner at Mike Shanahan’s Steakhouse in Denver on Thursday, and about 30-40 people attended, per the Denver Post. Teammates from Griffin’s playing career at Baylor, and current teammates from the Washington Redskins attended the wedding. So did Baylor coach Art Briles and Redskins coach Mike Shanahan.

Below are more photos from the wedding:

Robert Griffin III and Rebecca Liddicoat getting married this summer

Robert Griffin III Rebecca Liddicoat

Robert Griffin III and fiancee Rebecca Liddicoat are getting married this summer after being engaged for over a year and a half, the quarterback’s mother told FOX 5 in DC.

Griffin’s mother, Jackie, sat down for an interview with FOX 5. She praised her son in the interview, saying RG3 is “not afraid to show who he is” and that he “loves his fans.”

Jackie said her son and Liddicoat became engaged in Oct. 2011 after he proposed to her on the field following a practice with his family watching.

Liddicoat also attended Baylor and has been a mainstay at Griffin’s games both in college and the pros.

In case you’re interested in buying a gift for the couple, here’s their registry at Bed, Bath & Beyond. The registry says the wedding will be on July 6.

Behind every great man there’s a great woman, someone quotable I’m sure has said. Just ask Kobe about that — there’s a reason the Lakers are 1-2. Maybe Rebecca Liddicoat is the real fuel behind Robert Griffin III’s Heisman season.

Liddicoat is Griffin’s girlfriend and fiancee. Robert actually proposed to her while singing a song, and he had a friend play the music. The proposal also took place on a football field — not unlike another star quarterback from Texas.

Here are a few more pictures of the future Mrs. Griffin:
