Watching Alabama cream Notre Dame during Monday night's BCS National Championship game didn't exactly make for good television, so cameras spent a lot of time checking out 'Bama quarterback A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb.

Webb, 2012's Miss Alabama and an Auburn grad, was in the stands watching her boyfriend play when ESPN's cameras panned toward her and she caught the eye of 73-year-old announcer Brent Musburger and his colleague, Kirk Herbstreit.

"Well, I tell you, you quarterbacks, you get all the good-looking women. What a beautiful woman, whoa!" Musburger exclaimed. "So if you're a youngster at Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pops," he said.

"Wow, A.J.'s doing some things right," Herbstreit threw in.

Sports parody account, @NOTSportsCenter, received more than 12,000 retweets after it mocked Musburger's leering:

Musbuger wasn't the only one swooning over Webb. Arizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett hit on the 23-year-old in a tweet he had meant to be private. He deleted the tweet later but congratulated himself on helping Webb amass a whopping 100,000 more Twitter followers after the game.

Not one to let fellow football players hit on his girlfriend, McCarron responded to Dockett and Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray's advances over Twitter:

Hold on tight, McCarron!
