Video: Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit gush over AJ McCarron’s girlfriend

With Alabama crushing Notre Dame from the outset, ESPN desperately needs some way to keep viewers, and apparently their broadcasters, invested in the game.  Enter A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Miss Alabama Katherine Webb.  Seeing Webb on screen gave Brent Musburger the most excitement he had seen in the first quarter.

"Wow you quarterbacks get all the good looking women, what a beautiful woman, whoa!  If you're a youngster in Alabama, start getting the football out and throw it around the backyard with pops."

Sadly, it looks like this will be the most memorable moment of the 2013 BCS National Championship Game.  Jenn Sterger must be so jealous.

UPDATE: (Tuesday, 3:30 PM ET) ESPN has released a statement apologizing for Musburger's commentary saying the announcer went too far:

"We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that."
