(FREEP) — Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron won a second BCS National Championship on Monday, but it was his girlfriend who won the Internet.

Katherine Webb, who has been dating the Alabama quarterback for about a month, started trending on Twitter early in Alabama’s win over Notre Dame. Plenty of air time during the broadcast and an awkward exchange between the ESPN announcers served as a Twitter boost for the former Miss Alabama USA.

Webb, a 23-year-old Montgomery, Ala., native and Auburn alum, saw her followers increase from around 2,300 to more than 109,000 by early Tuesday morning.
