Joe Burrow is returning for his third season with the Cincinnati Bengals, after making a run at the playoffs in 2022. The quarterback, who was selected by the team in the 2020 NFL Draft, played in his first Super Bowl in Feb. 2022, but the Bengals were defeated by the Los Angeles Rams. However, it was the team’s first playoff appearance since 1990, and the team had a solid run last season before being defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Now with the 2023 season set to begin, Joe, 26, is preparing for the Bengals first game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Sep. 10. During the preseason, he suffered from a calf strain, but he assured reporters that he’s going to be good to play, per the NFL. “I’m ready to go,” he said. “We’re gonna see how these next couple days play out, because you never know with these things, but I’m expecting to play.”
Throughout his entire college and professional career, Joe has had the support of his girlfriend, Olivia Holzmacher. The gorgeous brunette has been a staple in the Bengals crowd throughout Joe’s tenure with the team. Of course, she was in attendance when they played in the 2022 Super Bowl. “Super Bowl LVI,” she wrote on Instagram. “Such an experience this weekend. Entirely proud. Thank you Cincinnati.” As another season kicks off, learn more about Olivia and her relationship with Joe below.
How Did Joe Burrow & Olivia Holzmacher Meet?
Joe and Olivia met when they were both students at Ohio State University. Joe went to the college from 2015-2018, while Olivia was a student from 2015-2019. In August 2018, Olivia posted on Instagram about how she and Joe were celebrating their one-year anniversary, so they began dating during the summer of 2017.
Joe began his college career at Ohio State before he transferred to Louisiana State University. Joe made the decision to transfer after red shirting one season and playing two seasons as the back-up quarterback for OSU. In 2018, he began his tenure as the starting quarterback at Louisiana State University. During his second season with the team, he led them to a National Championship win following the 2019 season.
Even though Olivia and Joe were long distance from the fall of 2018 until the spring of 2020 — with her in Ohio and him in Louisiana — they stayed together. She often flew to Louisiana to support Joe at his games and was no doubt his biggest cheerleader. She was also by his side when he was awarded the Heisman Trophy after the National Championship.

Olivia Is A Dog Mom
In December 2017, Olivia got her dog, Beau, who is a goldendoodle. “First day home!” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “8 week old mini goldendoodle who is way too calm and sweet. He learned to sit 4 times in a row and only had one potty accident the entire day! Couldn’t ask for a better pup!!” Olivia isn’t super active on Instagram, but she’s posted various photos of Beau, and often shares videos of him on her Instagram Story. Joe has fully embraced Beau, as well, and has been seen playing with the pup in various videos.
Olivia is On Social Media
Olivia’s Instagram handle is just her name — @OliviaHolzmacher. She doesn’t post on the social media site very often, and is fairly private about her relationship with Joe on her main page. However, she has been more active amidst the Bengals’ successful two seasons, and shares videos and photos to her Story more often than her main page. Amidst the 2022 football season, Olivia has more than 100,000 followers.
