Morgantown Bans Outdoor Furniture in Hopes of Curbing Couch Burning

The art of couch burning is not something done only in Morgantown, West Virginia, the home of the West Virginia Mountaineers, but the act is not identified with the culture of any other school quite like it is for the Mountaineers.
