It was David who fell head over heels in love with Mackenzie at first sight and kept trying to impress her. However, it wasn’t as easy for the 2 times Super Bowl champion as one may think. As a matter of fact, he was in Dempsey’s friend zone for quite some time as she mentioned with The Knot.

But in the fall of their junior year, she gave in and the duo went on their first date, and as they say, the rest is history.

Andrews Proposed To Mackenzie At Sanford Stadium In October 2015

In October 2015, David built up the courage to ask Dempsey the big question. He got down on one knee and popped the question to the love of his life on the 50-yard line of Stanford Stadium.

Mackenzie said Yes! without hesitation in front of her closest friends and both of their family members waiting in the stand. The lovebirds celebrated and afterward went downtown to General Beauregard’s bar to celebrate with other friends and family members. Coincidentally, it was the same bar that David and Mackenzie had their first kiss in 2013.
