The Cincinnati graduate is second in NFL history with 31 Super Bowl receptions


LAS VEGAS – Former Cincinnati Bearcats star Travis Kelce won his third Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

The UC graduate cemented himself as one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history, catching nine passes for 93 yards, in the Chiefs’ 25-22 overtime victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.

Former Bearcats safety Bryan Cook is also a member of the Chiefs, starting the first 12 games of the season at safety before suffering an injury.  He was the starting safety for the Bearcats 2021 CFP team.

Kelce and Cook become the 19th and 20th UC Super Bowl champions all-time.

Kelce’s three Super Bowl victories are the most ever by a Bearcat.

His 31 career Super Bowl receptions rank second in NFL history behind only Jerry Rice (33), and his 350 receiving yards rank fourth.

Kelce is a five-time All-Pro honoree, including this fall. He played at UC from 2009 to 2012. He launched the Eighty-Seven & Running Foundation in 2022. The endowment helps fund Cincinnati’s Sports Psychology and Counseling Department, directly impacting and aiding all 450 student-athletes.
