MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) West Virginia University says it has expelled three students in what police called riots following the Mountaineers' win over Baylor.

The university said Thursday that the students, who weren't identified, are among 14 facing criminal charges in the disturbances Saturday.

Morgantown police say crowds pushed over two street lamps and threw rocks and beer bottles at police and firefighters. Eight police cars were damaged, along with a fire engine and two Morgantown fire marshal vehicles.

The university says in a news release that other students could face sanctions.

President Gordon Gee says in the release that the university will hold students accountable for unlawful behavior.
