After several days of rumors that the two had been seeing each other, Ponder confirmed on Twitter that he and Steele were in fact dating.
Steele, who took over as a reporter for College Gameday after the departure of Erin Andrews, has quickly become a fan favorite for her quirky personality and stunning good looks. But Ponder, who was taken in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, is no slouch himself.
The second-year quarterback out of Florida State has been able to turn around a struggling Minnesota franchise this season and is considered one of the most talented young quarterbacks in the NFL.
Ponder and Steele may be a new item, but with bright futures for both, the sky appears to be the limit for their relationship.
