Twitter Account Soars for Alabama QB’s Girlfriend Following Attention During BCS Championship Game – Video 1/7/13 UPDATE: Video of McCarron’s Reaction Added

It’s not from Alabama’s trouncing of Notre Dame to win their second straight National Championship – and third in four years. It’s when announcer Brent Musburger complimented Alabama Quarterback A.J.
