Burning Couches & Tear Gas: Morgantown Riots After WVU Upsets Baylor

West Virginia Mountaineers fans decided not to go the traditional houseparty route after their boys upset the #4 Baylor Bears 41-27 in Morgantown on Saturday.

As this bro is so kind to point out in Instagram form, "West "F---kin Virginia" decided to up the ante by setting a ton of couches on fire:
