Former University of Cincinnati tight end Travis Kelce (2008-12) became the 13th Bearcats player in school history to win a Super Bowl Sunday evening.

Kelce's Kansas City Chiefs knocked off the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20, in Super Bowl LIV at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Kelce finished the game with six receptions for 43 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown catch, the first touchdown by a former UC player in the Super Bowl.

Travis joins his older brother, Jason (Super Bowl LII - Philadelphia Eagles), as a Super Bowl champion.
