EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – East Lansing police say at least 15 people were arrested during a rowdy celebration of Michigan State’s victory over Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game.

The police department’s weekend report says 12 people arrested were students and one was an alumnus. East Lansing police say there were at least 57 fires, especially in a neighborhood of apartments just off campus.

Police are offering up to $20,000 for tips that lead to convictions.

The Lansing State Journal posted video online showing thousands of revelers cheering as a couch was tossed on a fire. The street scenes early Sunday occurred after the Spartans defeated the Buckeyes and earned a Rose Bowl bid.

Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo says he’s disgusted and disappointed by what happened.
