Sneaky, sneaky: Northwestern DB is going around stealing towels vs. Wisconsin
Even though this is a critical game for both teams, Northwestern defensive back JR Pace is having a bit of fun as he’s stealing towels from Badgers players.

After the interception, Pace took not one but two towels from Badgers players.
Pace is having a great year for the Wildcats this season as he has 12 solo tackles (16 total) with one interception. Last year as a junior, he had 42 total tackles (25 solo) with an interception and three passes defended.
His sophomore season has been his best one to date as he had 82 tackles (51 solo) with three sacks and four interceptions. He also had seven passes defended during that season for the Wildcats.
We’ll have to see if he steals any other towels by the end of this game.
