Big 12 sends note to K-State's Snyder asking that he retire out-of-date bowl game jacket

The Big 12 has cried foul on Kansas State coach Bill Snyder's game-day wardrobe.

Snyder typically wears purple windbreakers on the sideline that have logos of past bowl games on them, some of them several years old. But Snyder received a note from the league office this week respectfully asking that he retire some of the outdated ones.

The reason? The Big 12 no longer has contracts with some of those bowl games anymore, and others have changed names. That includes the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, now called the Cactus Bowl, which Snyder wore on his jacket during last week's nationally televised game against Auburn.

To steer clear of trouble, Snyder opted for a rare white windbreaker — sans bowl logo — for Saturday's 58-28 blowout of UTEP.
