In honor of Fort Riley Day, the Wildcats wore camouflage Powercat logos on their helmets Saturday for the game against Iowa State. The one-time change was noteworthy. It was the first modification of the K-State football helmet since Bill Snyder created the current design during his first year in 1989.

• Special guests in attendance Saturday included Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby and scouts from the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings.
• The Kansas State baseball team was honored after the first quarter. Bowlsby presented the Wildcats with their Big 12 championship rings, which they earned during a record season earlier this year. Former quarterback Collin Klein was also honored in the second quarter for winning Big 12 male athlete of the year as a senior.
• Daniel Sams and Tramaine Thompson might get some TV time this weekend for a wild play they made in the second quarter. On third and 7, Sams scrambled all over the field and threw a desperation pass across his body that was intended for Tyler Lockett. The pass sailed over Lockett’s head and ended up in the hands of Thompson. The catch resulted in a first down and K-State went on to score.
• Derby tight end DeAndre Goolsby attended Saturday’s game, and K-State went out of its way to make him feel welcome. The Wildcats showed highlights of his father, Brian, who used to play fullback at K-State, throughout the game. He was also the answer to a trivia question on the video board. Goolsby is a four-star recruit who is considering K-State, Florida, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
