CHICAGO (CBS) — With Alabama rolling up the score on Notre Dame, what is ESPN to do to hold viewer interest?

Focus on the beauty shot!

In this case, that shot was the stunning Katherine Webb, the girlfriend of Alabama football hero and quarterback A.J. McCarron. Oh, she’s also Miss Alabama.

And now, Twitter has a new sensation.

Webb’s account skyrocketed from a few thousand followers to over 140,000 at of 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The geriatric Brent Musburger took notice during the broadcast.

“I’m telling you, you quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women,” Musburger said. “What a beautiful woman.”

CBS Atlanta reports that Arizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett asked her out on a date–to a Miami strip club.

“[W]hen game over, lets go to wing stop then King of diamond,” Dockett tweeted.

He then realized he made the tweet public, instantly saying afterwards it was meant to be a direct message for her. The tweets have since been deleted.
