The 2021 football season is now in full swing.
We’re two weeks into the 2021 college football regular season, with several notable games already taking place. Ohio State lost to Oregon on Saturday, while Alabama continues to look like the best team in the country.
The NFL season is starting up, too. The Buccaneers beat the Cowboys on Thursday night, with the rest of the league set to kick off on Sunday and Monday.
In honor of the football season getting underway, let’s take a look back at when viral fan Katherine Webb – who’s now married to quarterback A.J. McCarron – posed for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Webb, an Auburn student, went viral during the BCS National Championship Game. She was spotted by ABC’s cameras and pointed out by Brent Musburger and the rest is history.
The viral fan landed a bunch of cool opportunities as a result of her moment. Among those opportunities: posing for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit.
Naturally, Webb had an Alabama-football themed photoshoot with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. The former Auburn grad is now married to McCarron. The happy couple has three kids together.
McCarron is unfortunately injured this season, as he suffered a leg injury in a Falcons preseason game.
Webb is one of several notable sports figures to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue over the years.
