EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Police in Eugene, Oregon, say a few outdoor fires were set Monday night in the wake of the Oregon Ducks’ 42-20 loss to Ohio State in the College Football Playoff national championship game but no arrests or injuries were reported.

Police put on extra patrols in advance of the big event but spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin said there were no major incidents to report late Monday night. She says five or so outdoor fires burned chairs or debris but the fires were quickly extinguished.

On campus, The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/ZSkAXd ) that University of Oregon police Lt. Herb Horner says a group of students overturned recycling bins and tossed a lit sock into the trash. Horner said campus police, too, had extra officers on patrol.

Fans resigned to the outcome began leaving the Wild Duck Cafe near the UO campus with more than two minutes left in the game.

Elsewhere, students wearing Ducks’ apparel quietly left the Global Scholars Hall where they had watched the game that was played in Arlington, Texas.

Said 18-year-old freshman Erin Jones, “We still love the whole team. I hope we win next year.”
