Before today's all-important opening game, Kansas State took the time to honor former purple stalwarts. Clarence Scott, Michael Bishop, Darren Sproles, and Jordy Nelson were inducted into the K-State Ring of Honor yesterday, and will be honored on the field today.

Our own Derek Smith has more on Kansas State's Ring of Honor offensive dream team (Junction City Daily Union).
