Some Penn State fans immediately rushed the field after Penn State took out No. 2 Ohio State.

Others headed straight for the exits and went to downtown State College.

Police ordered fans to disperse more than an hour after the 24-21 win. The crowds were deemed “unlawful,” according to Penn State police. Social media posts have indicated that fans destroyed public property, including street lights, signs and utility poles, which caused a power outage and downed power lines.

“The unlawful gathering in downtown State College is being ordered to disperse by police, leave the downtown area,” Penn State police tweeted.
