By now, even casual college football fans know the names of guys like Manti Te’o, A.J. McCarron and Robert Lester, and the important role they’ll play in Monday night’s BCS National Championship Game.
But as we’ve seen so many times before, championships aren’t always won because of big contributions from star players, but instead unheralded role players stepping up for huge performances with a title on the line.
So who are the key, unheralded players heading into this year’s BCS title game?

I’m just here to point out that, lost in all of the “holy cow that girl is more than moderately attractive” sentiment that seems to be spreading about the internet is the picture below of Katherine Webb, taken with some...
With Alabama already up 14-0 on Notre Dame BCS Championship Game, Brent Musburger decided to turn his attention to Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend Katherine Webb.
And for Musburger, that means saying things like, “what a beautiful woman, wow!” Then following it up with a “Whoa!”

In back-to-back national championship games against top-ranked defenses, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has completed 43 of 62 passes and thrown four touchdowns without a single interception.
If Alabama beats Notre Dame on Monday, the SEC will have taken home the last seven national titles. Barrett Jones knows people are tired of the conference's dominance, but he doesn't care one bit.
During last night’s BCS National Championship rout game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, ESPN showed a short clip of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend, Miss Alabamba, Katherine Webb.
