Travis Kelce has never been described as “politically correct” or a keeper of the peace.

In fact, he’s well-known for inciting madness on the football field and encouraging folks to “fight for your right to partaayy!”

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end lived up to the billing on Thursday night when he was surprised with an impromptu commencement ceremony at his college university.


Travis, and his brother Jason Kelce (former All-Pro center for Philadelphia), went back to the University of Cincinnati to record a live episode of their incredibly popular “New Heights” podcast, and were surprised by UC officials with a chance to walk across the stage and receive their diplomas.

Despite both of them graduating from the university, neither had the chance to do this beforehand, so it was a cool moment for the duo.

Just before Travis was set to shake hands and pick up his diploma, he did something that only he could do: Stone Cold Steve Austin’ed a brewski and spiked the can on stage.

The live episode of New Heights will be released next week and is sure to have all kinds of incredible content after a wild event in the Queen City on Thursday night. And while Taylor Swift didn’t appear to show up, her fans certainly were.
