In 2010, Kelce didn’t play due to violation of team rules (failed drug test for marijuana), which resulted in a one-year suspension.

He had 45 receptions for 722 yards and eight touchdowns. He was named First-Team All-Big East and winner of the College Football Performance Awards Tight End of the Year.
