The Foolish Games star has been quietly dating the Indianapolis Colts quarterback and she joined the sportsman at Monday night's (11Jan16) college football championship game between his alma mater, Clemson University, and the University of Alabama in Arizona.

Jewel's friend, Entertainment Tonight presenter Nancy O'Dell, spotted the couple on the sidelines and shared a photo of the threesome online, confirming their new relationship status.

"Love running in to my pal @jewel on the field," O'Dell wrote on Instagram.com. "Loved her from 1st time I met her & now she's dating a Clemson fella, Charlie Whitehurst = awesome!"

Unfortunately, the stars' presence failed to help Clemson clinch the college title - the team lost 40-45.

Jewel ended her six-year marriage to rodeo star Ty Murray in 2014. They are parents to a four-year-old son named Kase.
