UCLA Fans Went All West Virginia On Couches After Beating Michigan

Pray for California Governor Gavin Newsom and the blue checkmark Twitter warriors who will eventually see the news this morning that UCLA fans lit up couches in Westwood after Johnny Juzang and the Bruins beat Michigan to make the Final Four. There weren’t many masks being worn as students threw couches into a fire pit and celebrated Michigan going without a field goal over the final 5:22 in a 51-49 loss.

“A crowd of at least 100 Bruin fans on 10900 block of Roebling Avenue in Westwood following the win, celebrating around a large fire in the street as Sky5 arrived above the scene at about 9:45 p.m. It appeared to be a couch that was burning, but firefighters moved in and extinguished the flames at about 10 p.m.,” KTLA reported.

The UCLA student newspaper, the Daily Bruin, reported there was some standing on top of cars, a student riding in a Target shopping cart like he was in a Jackass skit and a student who broke out a trumpet to play the school’s fight song.

Let’s just hope the governor doesn’t take this news and force the students into solitary confinement for Saturday’s game against Gonzaga. It’s good to see some West Virginia stuff back in college basketball after an incredibly quiet March Madness for campuses across the country. Who would’ve thought going in that UCLA would be creating content on the eve of April and the Final Four? Not I.

  1. When you notice you don’t have a winning culture in like, forever and you rip off the celebration efforts from another not winning culture, you probably do not have a winning culture. Congrats on the partying, unplanned sex, and making your parents buy a new couch.
