Jones dropped to a knee during the on-field celebration and proposed to his girlfriend Mandy Piechowski, a former Michigan State basketball player.

Jones and Piechowski met while at Michigan State, and have been dating for more than a year and a half.

The proposal was very a la Boise State running back Ian Johnson after the Broncos’ Fiesta Bowl win in 2007.

ESPN has a story with quotes, and also a photo gallery. also has a video from an Indianapolis-based marketing firm of the aftermath of the proposal.
