AJ McCarron girlfriend Katherine Webb rooting for Alabama over Auburn


Katherine Webb, the beauty queen/model girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, announced prior to Saturday’s huge Iron Bowl game between the Crimson Tide and Auburn Tigers that she will be rooting for Bama despite being an Auburn grad.

A few hours before the game, Webb tweeted “RTR,” which stands for “Roll Tide Roll.”

She then explained why she would be supporting boyfriend McCarron over Auburn:

Webb has been attending Bama’s games all season to support McCarron, and there were questions about whether she would attend the Iron Bowl. Despite attending and graduating from Auburn, Webb has never been to an Iron Bowl game. She admitted during the week that she will be nervous about the game, but not because of what might happen with the fans; she’s nervous about Alabama pursuing the national championship.

“This is the first actual game, Iron Bowl, that I will be attending,” Webb told USA Today. “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.

“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.”

Bama has won three national championships in the last four seasons and is going for three in a row. McCarron has been extremely focused all season and has been extraordinarily programmed by Nick Saban to never get ahead of himself. He takes all his opponents seriously regardless of their accomplishments or record. That attitude has helped Alabama avoid the kind of disappointing losses that can take you out of a national championship hunt. Still, with the kind of luck Auburn has had this season, Webb should be nervous for her boyfriend.

Another interesting aspect here is how much Webb has been supporting McCarron. There were rumors in September that the two broke up. Webb said not to believe the rumors. She then attended Bama’s game the next week and gave McCarron a kiss, but it looked much more like an ex-girlfriend kiss than anything else. The two seem to be doing much better since then, because Webb has been at his games and their kisses have been much better. Webb sure hopes she’ll be giving her boyfriend kisses of joy after his next few games, because this is will be it for McCarron’s college football career.
