STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - State College police say they’re again investigating reports of property damage and possible rioting by fans following a major victory by the Penn State football team.

Police used pepper spray, and mounted officers in riot gear to disburse what they called an “unlawful disturbance” following Saturday night’s Big Ten Championship win over Wisconsin.

Police haven’t announced arrests, but reported some fans climbing on street signs, others removing a street light and even one report that a fan sprayed a police horse with a beer.

Police wound up charging 13 fans, including 11 students following the team’s upset win over then No. 2 Ohio State in October. Police estimated then that up to 10,000 fans did about $30,000 in property damage.

Police say the gathering after Saturday’s win appeared larger.
