Travis Kelce Wore a Sweet Nod to Taylor Swift at UC Graduation

Travis Kelce Wore a Sweet Nod to Taylor Swift at UC Graduation

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end and his brother, former Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, received their college diplomas at a “surprise commencement” ceremony at the University of Cincinnati on April 11.

 

 

The duo took the stage during a live event for their podcast New Heights with Travis, 34, noticeably rocking a beaded bracelet reminiscent of the kind Swift’s fans famously exchange during the singer’s Eras Tour.

Both brothers have previously graduated from the university (Travis earned a degree in interdisciplinary studies in 2022 and Jason, 36, got a bachelor’s degree in marketing), but neither attended their commencement ceremonies at the time, per the Cincinnati Enquirer.

In a photo from the ceremony posted by the Cincinnati Bearcats on Instagram, Travis can be seen speaking into a microphone while red and white confetti falls around him.

 

 

On his wrist are multiple bracelets, one of which looks very similar to the friendship bracelets that were swapped by fans during Swift’s tour. The bracelet appears to contain letter beads, but it’s not clear what it spells out.

 

 

 

 

This isn’t the first time Travis has gotten in on the Eras Tour bracelet trend. In fact, he attempted to give his own DIY design to Swift, 34, before they officially started dating. In February 2024, he was decked out in friendship bracelets while supporting Swift at her concert in Sydney, Australia.

In a video posted on X, he can be seen standing in the VIP tent smiling toward the stage and dancing with beaded bracelets on both of his wrists.

Travis was also spotted in beaded bracelets at his brother’s NFL retirement press conference. In photos from the March 4 event, the football star wears three bracelets, including a beaded friendship bracelet with the name “Kelce” spelled out with letter beads.
