Jason and Travis Kelce took their “New Heights” podcast to a different place on Thursday.

The NFL brothers entertained a wild crowd inside Fifth Third Arena on the campus of the University of Cincinnati, featuring an all-star lineup that included Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and fellow Kelce clan travelers.

The famous football brothers were presented with a surprise graduation ceremony at their alma mater.

“Travis and I are both incredibly honored and it’s crazy that we’re being put in positions to stuff like this,” Jason told reporters. “But anytime we come back there’s such a way of emotion and memories that really hit you, especially walking into this room. You spend so much time here and as a student-athlete, you’re invested into the football program, the university.”

Jason added, “You’re here non-stop and it’s such a big part of anybody’s career or life that whenever you come back it definitely hits you full force.”

Both Jason Kelce and Travis were given their diplomas, making the younger Kelce brother emotional over his love for his university.

Travis Kelce, who earned his bachelor’s degree in 2022, accepted his diploma while the Beastie Boys’ hit song “Fight For Your Right” was in the background.

Then he chugged a beer.

A Raucous Night

It was a raucous night with plenty of references to Travis’s relationship with megastar Taylor Swift.

In the appearance by Burrow, he was enthusiastically cheered.

The Bengals quarterback said of the rivalry between the Chiefs and the Bengals — “I think we’re built to beat them.”

“Yeah, I’m pro taunting” he added.

Travis and Jason’s mother, Donna Kelce, was there to see her sons’ first live show.

And was handing out Subway sandwiches.

What a night.
