N.C. State’s Bradley Chubb on his towel thefts vs. Clemson: ‘It’s just mind games’

Bradley Chubb’s gamesmanship last week vs. Clemson received plenty of national attention. However, the N.C. State defensive end is far from ashamed.

Chubb stole the towel from Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant’s uniform multiple times during the first half.

Clemson players, including Bryant, took it all in stride.

Bryant joked that Chubb “owes him some towels” and Christian Wilkins even admitted “I wish I thought of it first.”

In a story from News & Observer reporter Joe Giglio, Chubb explains this is part of his weekly routine.

“I do that every week,” Chubb said of the towel-swiping. “I’ve got film from Syracuse, Notre Dame, all that. I do it every week, the camera just caught me this week.”

Chubb says it’s just another way to try to gain an edge on the gridiron.

“As a quarterback, the first thing you do before you hike the ball is wipe your hands on the towel,” Chubb said. “If I take that away from you, that’s one thing you’re thinking about: Where’s my towel? Who keeps taking my towel?

“It’s just mind games.”

Chubb’s teammate Hampton Billips poked some fun at the incident in this video.

#SaveTheTowels is definitely a rallying cry whenever an opponent lines up against Chubb.

Chubb is a major factor behind N.C. State’s 6-3 record, as he leads the ACC with 17.5 tackles for loss.

N.C. State is second place in the ACC Atlantic.

N.C. State will play at Boston College on Nov. 11 in a noon (EST) matchup.
