[Kansas State University]

"Originally known as the Aggies," the term "Wildcats" was first adopted for Kansas State University athletic teams in 1915 when football coach "Jawn" Bender called his players wildcats after they fought to a 0 - 0 tie with Missouri.

"Willie the Wildcat" is the oldest active logo, having been introduced in the early 1960's. The Powercat logo arrived in 1989 and was first used by the football team. Today, it is the most popular mark in sales in the history of K-State.
