She shot to worldwide fame after showing up at the BCS Football Championship game to support boyfriend AJ McCarron, and now is featured in the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Sporting her beau’s Alabama University jersey, the 23-year-old beauty queen is the picture of perfection as she works her magic for the camera.
Earlier this month, Katherine nabbed a gig as a correspondent for Inside Edition at the New Orleans Superdome for the SuperBowl.
And to think it all started because ESPN commentator Brent Musburger singled her out in the college championship game crowd and said she was beautiful!
