The Kelce brothers had graduated from the University of Cincinnati, but had not been able to celebrate that achievement at a commencement ceremony.

And the Kelce brothers love a good party.

Jason and Travis Kelce held an event at UC’s Fifth Third Arena on Thursday for their podcast “New Heights.” And at the end they received the diplomas they had obtained years ago. Travis honored the occasion as only the Kansas City Chiefs tight end can.

He shook hands with UC President Dr. Neville Pinto, and then threw a can of beer onto the stage as the Beastie Boys played “Fight For Your Right” – a song that has become an anthem for Kelce and the Chiefs during their dynasty – played in the arena. Then Kelce spiked the mostly empty can like a football and grabbed his diploma. Naturally.

Dan Hoard, the radio voice of the Cincinnati Bengals and the University of Cincinnati football and basketball teams, captured the unique graduation celebration.

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Travis Kelce completed his remaining credit hours to complete an interdisciplinary degree in 2022. Recently retired Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce completed a degree in marketing but was unable to go through his normal commencement ceremony, according to the Inquirer.

The Kelce brothers’ fame has exploded in the past year. A big part of that is Travis Kelce’s relationship with pop superstar Taylor Swift, and the mainstream attention that came with it. Kelces’ “New Heights” podcast is very popular. Jason Kelce is a legend in Philadelphia for his stellar career with the Eagles, and Travis has helped the Chiefs win three of the last four Super Bowls. For those who weren’t very familiar with Jason Kelce, his shirtless antics cheering on Travis and the Chiefs from a suite with Swift at a Buffalo Bills home game last January attracted some new fans.

The Kelces are also legends at the University of Cincinnati – even more legendary after Travis drank Kelce’s beer on stage while receiving his degree.
