LSU Vs. West Virginia: Morgantown Starts To Go Nuts

Friday has been a crazy day in Morgantown, and it's only going to get crazier leading up to the Mountaineers Saturday matchup against WVU. 

West Virginia fans camped out all night in rainy weather Thursday, not for the game, but to be on ESPN College GameDay on Friday. Erin Andrews was there, wearing a coonskin hat. ("It smells," she said.) Video, plus more details about a strange day in Morgantown, after the jump.

Also on Friday, numerous tweets reported that LSU fans invaded WVU classrooms to talk trash.

Then there was the city of Morgantown's crackdown on ... porch furniture? Yep, and if you've ever lived in Morgantown, you're probably nodding right now. Lots of student residences have porches with couches on them, and the city is trying to prevent a couch-burning if the Mountaineers happen to do well (and maybe if they don't). 

Saturday should be an even crazier day in Morgantown, so beware if, like me, you're planning on traveling to town that day.
