Kansas State owns Texas with Bill Snyder as its leader, according to a Wikipedia page updated Thursday.

The change to the “Outline of Texas” page lists K-State as the owner with Snyder as the totalitarian leader of the state. The page was updated December 29, 171 years to the day that the Republic of Texas joined the United States as the 28th state.

By the end of K-State’s 33-28 Texas Bowl victory over Texas A&M on Wednesday, fans were cheering “we own Texas.”

K-State’s victory was the fifth of the year against a Texas team, previously beating Texas Tech, Texas, Baylor and Texas Christian.

One Wildcat fan in Texas already has a new design for his license plate.

The Fake Willie Wildcat account lamented the lack of a certain Texas food chain near the K-State campus.

In exchange for Whataburgers, K-State can offer copies of Snyder’s 16 goals.

Some TCU fans seemed open to the idea.
