From the desk of Matt Williams: Coming up this morning

Happy New Year's Eve! For LSU fans, not so much happy. We'll give you a look at what happened in the bowl game and what needs to happen next. Speaking of what's happening, the flu is spreading, big time. Many health officials are calling it epidemic. How much longer might the season last and what can you do to fight it? We'll fill you in. And of course the latest on all the party preps for tonight. Just be careful out there. We'll see you for 9NTM, The Big Extra Hour and The Early Edition beginning at 4:30 a.m.
