The Bengals will travel to Kansas City for next Sunday's AFC Championship, and it was a touchdown in overtime by former Cincinnati Bearcats standout Travis Kelce - the Chiefs' star tight end - that propelled his team into the conference title game.
Kelce celebrated his first-quarter touchdown during a 34-31 loss to the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium earlier this month by gesturing and shouting "U-C" in the end zone as a tribute to his alma mater.
Social media reactions to Kelce's game-winning touchdown:

The #Bengals did a nice job on Travis Kelce in the first meeting for the most part. Tyreek Hill is the player the game plan will surely revolve around.
He and Mahomes can change the game at any moment.

Kelce, who finished the Jan. 2 game in Cincinnati with five catches for 25 yards, was in attendance at AT&T Stadium for UC's Cotton Bowl loss to Alabama days earlier.
Kelce paid tribute to UC to celebrate a game-winning touchdown in overtime in December that capped the six-time Pro Bowler's career-best 191-yard effort against the Los Angeles Chargers.
