Super Bowl Coverage LIVE from New Orleans

From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

It's the Friday before the Super Bowl and the excitement surrounding the big game continues to build in New Orleans. We'll take you there LIVE. Matt, Lauren and Graham will report from there all morning. They'll take you behind the scenes to show you how CBS gets this massive production off the ground. Many adults and kids are playing hooky to enjoy all of the activities associated with the Super Bowl. Hopefully, their bosses and teachers don't see this report. And, a Baton Rouge business that expanded to New Orleans will show us how things are going with such a major event in town.
