Win over Baylor sparks Saturday night riots in West Virginia

Authorities in Morgantown, W.Va., on Sunday assessed damage from riots that broke out after West Virginia’s 41-27 win over No. 4 Baylor, while WVU President Gordon Gee warned students that he will not tolerate such behavior.

Crowds pushed over street lights and threw rocks, beer bottles and other items at public safety personnel and their vehicles. Numerous fires were set in the student-dominated Sunnyside area and other areas.

“This is not acceptable Mountaineer behavior,” Gee said in the university’s statement. “It is criminal and will be dealt with as such.”

The incidents began shortly before 10:30 p.m. Saturday.
