Kylie Kelce, Jason Sudeikis headline star-studded Iowa-UConn March Madness Final Four

The stars were shining both on and off the court on Friday night in Cleveland.

While Caitlin Clark and Iowa beat Paige Bueckers and UConn, 71-69, at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, Kylie Kelce and Jason Sudeikis were among the celebrities in attendance for the big NCAA Tournament Final Four matchup.

Kelce, the wife of ex-Eagles center Jason Kelce, was seen before the game started going to her seat before she enjoyed what was a thrilling game between the two women’s college basketball powerhouses.

“Everyone watches women’s sports,” the official March Madness X account shared with a smile emoji with two star eyes.

It was not clear if Jason, the Cleveland Heights, Ohio native, was there.

Kylie, who grew up outside of Philadelphia, was at last Saturday’s Phillies game as her husband threw out one of the the ceremonial first pitches before signing the spikes of Bryce Harper.

Sudeikis, meanwhile, was also in attendance and even made an appearance on the ESPN 2 alternate broadcast that was hosted by WNBA legends Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi.

The “Ted Lasso” star donned an oversized UConn Huskies jacket, which he made sure to tell the audience was intentionally large and not form-fitting.

“Look at this, look at this. No, I didn’t lose weight in the break — it’s an XXL. A [1990s] legit XXL,” the actor said with a huge laugh.

Sudeikis has been at a number of Iowa games this year, supporting Clark at the Elite Eight in Albany when Iowa downed Angel Reese and LSU.

Among the others in attendance included women’s basketball legends Cheyl Miller and Maya Moore-Irons and singer Darius Rucker.
