Wildcat trickery

K-State coach Bill Snyder played a trick on Baylor during warm-ups. Both Tramaine Thompson and Tyler Lockett fielded punts with K-State’s special-teams unit and appeared fit to play.

But when the team returned for the opening kickoff Thompson was in sweats and Lockett was holding a clipboard. Neither receiver played. Thompson has missed the last two games for unspecified reasons. Lockett is recovering from a hamstring injury suffered at Oklahoma State.

They were both considered questionable heading into Saturday, but Snyder said he expects both of them to play against West Virginia.

• K-State cornerback Kip Daily left the game and was unable to return after taking a hit that the crowd deemed questionable on Saturday. When asked about the hit, Snyder said his thoughts would be “better left unsaid.”

• Weston Hiebert’s blocked punt was K-State’s first since 2009.

• One NFL scout was in attendance. The Kansas City Chiefs sent the lone representative.

• Quarterback Daniel Sams briefly left the game with a shoulder injury, but returned after receiving treatment in the locker room. Afterward, Sams said he was healthy.

“I’m a little banged up,” he said. “But it’s nothing ice can’t fix.”
