Following boyfriend Jake Browning’s contribution to the Bengals’ 31-14 victory over the Browns in Cincinnati to close out the regular season, Stephanie Niles, whose eye-catching game-day outfit gained attention, shifted her focus to cheering for the Washington Huskies in their CFP national championship game against the Michigan Wolverines.
In an Instagram Story shared from NRG Stadium in Houston, Niles expressed optimism with a post that read, “Dawgs by a million.” Having reportedly attended Washington, where Browning played for four seasons from 2015-2018, Niles also shared a photo of the school’s marching band forming “DAWGS” on the field.
Despite Washington’s efforts to narrow the gap to seven points before halftime, the Wolverines secured a 34-13 victory, concluding an undefeated season. For Browning and Niles, who have been dating for over five years, it marked a disappointing end to a series of exciting days.
Browning, who stepped in for injured Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow in November, wrapped up the regular season with an impressive performance, throwing for 156 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. However, the victory was described as “bittersweet” by Browning, as Cincinnati narrowly missed the postseason.
Reflecting on the rollercoaster experience, Niles, in a new Instagram post, captioned her dance in a white bodysuit from her suite with, “What a ride!! How INSANE is this life!!!” It highlighted the couple’s journey and the emotional ups and downs of the recent football events.
Talk about a wild week for Browning and his girlfriend.
