COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Police have made a handful of arrests after using tear gas to disperse some Ohio State students and football fans following the Buckeyes’ 42-20 win over the University of Oregon.

Officers on foot, on horses and in cruisers patrolled the main drag through campus after the game, when revelers spilled out of bars near the campus, celebrating the university’s win in the first national title game in college football’s playoffs.

WCMH-TV, showing images of revelers burning a couch, reported Tuesday that police arrested a handful of students who could face both criminal and university charges.

A police spokesman says there were 30 to 40 fires in trash cans and Dumpsters.

There was no word of injuries or arrests.

No problems were reported in Oregon.
