Travis Kelce is reminiscing about his college days, when he regularly enjoyed a whole pizza — and weighed 285 lbs.!

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, swapped memories with his brother Jason on the latest episode of their New Heights podcast, where they looked back on their time as football stars at the University of Cincinnati.

The two, set to return to their alma mater next month for a special recording of their podcast on April 11, are seemingly looking forward to a culinary perk of the trip as well.

“What’s the first thing you’re doing?” Jason, 36, asked about the visit.

“Adriatico’s,” Travis answered almost immediately, adding that he hopes to have one or two “Bearcat” pizzas — which he was known for indulging in during college.

“I was bigger than you right now,” Travis said. “I was every bit of 285 [lbs.].”

Flash forward to now, and it’s also a weight that Travis said he was approaching in the offseason.

“It's March, we're in the same weight class right now,” he laughed, after Jason said he weighed 283 lbs. that morning.

The brothers' mutual appreciation for food and drink have proven to be a running theme on the podcast.

While they were admittedly picky eaters as children, the grown-up Kelce brothers still have strong opinions about food.

In past episodes, Travis and Jason have debated the merits of restaurants like Waffle House and Burger King, ranked the best fast food burgers and even weighed in on overrated (Peeps) and underrated (Nerds Gummy Clusters) candy.

Just back from the Bahamas with Taylor Swift, Travis was photographed in Malibu with his girlfriend at Nobu — known for its fresh fish — earlier this week.

The NFL star said he has shown discipline when it comes to food post-college — and that it has paid off for him.

“I got back down to 250 and won the Super Bowl,” he boasted to Jason.
