Katherine Webb will add champion of goodwill to her resume that now also includes Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, because she managed to show love for both Auburn and Alabama in her famed photo shoot. 

Sports Illustrated is doing a lot of teasing this week ahead of their Swimsuit Issue release.

The magazine has this wonderful report on A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, showing off her sexy swag and affection for two bitter college football rivals, and released this teaser which you might be interested to see.  

To see the year's biggest star in what seems to be an Auburn and Alabama mashup jersey, visit their Webb dedicated breakdown. I will now leave you to your Roll Tide and War Eagle debates. 

It is still so remarkable that someone who was relatively unknown at the start of the year is now one of the reasons many will go out and buy the popular Sports Illustrated issue. 

A mere mention by Brent Musburger gets you quite a bit nowadays, because Webb will now feature in a magazine with Kate Upton, and possibly follow with her on Monday's episode of The Late Show With David Letterman. 

Here is a tweet from Upton featuring Webb along with fellow models, Chrissy Teigen and Hanna Davis. Oh, to be a random person asked to take that picture. 

As Coed Magazine reports, the models braved the weather right before shooting a Top 10 list that will culminate in an unveiling of the Swimsuit Issue's cover. 

Hooray for horribly kept secrets, because last week a leaked photo showed Upton had won her second consecutive cover in the famed issue. 

Not that we will be put off from watching the models on David Letterman's show. SI.com already reported Upton went back-to-back, but we will play along and act surprised when the show kicks off at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.

At that moment, the race for next year's cover will be on. While Upton has dominated every corner of pop culture for over a year, it's entirely likely we are about to enter the age of Katherine Webb. 

The woman who was once "A.J. McCarron's girlfriend" is very much a household name now.
