They're led by quarterback Matt Ryan who beat Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta journal constitution tells us has his sights set on some hardware out there then the Lombardi trophy. Yet thirty toward. An eighteen point at that rate you know he looked MVP candidate even better for any number of lives. Another impressive stat for Matty ice he's only thrown seven interceptions all season in Oklahoma and Auburn have arrived in town ahead of their match up in the superdome for the Sugar Bowl sooners head coach Bob Stoops is wary too much about his players abusing the New Orleans nightlife. Now it just managing yes being down here and a great city. And to enjoy the city properly and still be prepared to play and to get our work done in meetings and on the field and believe our guys will be able to do that. The Allstate Sugar Bowl kicks off at 8:30 PM on Monday. Theological Ortiz is getting ready you know for the first bowl showdown against little bull. A drug that Darius is ready to take over the reins at the tigers' running back. Now that important getting ready for his next career bounces to our up like usual best backs in the country we're glad we have him back we look forward and amity physical football game or slowed and the pelicans homestand continues tonight with about against LA clippers. Going for a third straight victory while the clips have dropped three in a row. It off in this teaching center is at 7 PM. Today for sports talk with Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia the guy's a rebuke rebuke it's cold it was this applause QB QB with three birdies. I'm Steve a dollar and that your early morning look at sports thank you Steve should do very good game between. Pelz on the clippers what about our old favorite that Chris Paul from years ago is expected to play he is questionable this evening dealing with a hamstring injury right now and the clippers definitely need him back in the lineup. They've dropped three in a row but they they've had a pretty good season out there in the the top ranks of the Western Conference teams right now. A will be a tough match up especially. For Anthony Davis having a matchup against the Andre Jordan the clippers Malia our fingers crossed that the pills will make it three wins only in the second time they would do that this year to they've only won three in a wrote one other time so now it's time to time. All right you mentioned that the Sugar Bowl teams are in town and I remember years ago and I used to cover news and sports and me this was like a huge huge lead into this year Goebel. It's that it's not as. Interest they are people interested at this time around. Yeah I guess the hype around bowl games in general if you're not one of them play off games seems to have taken a step back now and I don't know fits the media or the fans but it I definitely feel it as well that. No one's as amp up or pumped up for the Sugar Bowl it it that plea was a big thing when I mean I'm only about that. You know it's it's what the big six gains even though it's not a playoff game it's still a major bowl event. On it is great match up I think oh. All burn might have a little bit of an upper hand because of their defense.

To the New Orleans for a decimation so that's good fateful over the holidays all and I went totally bored so we just looked up the number are a bowl game and some of the names they're just to me I think that's to me not the play off putting a damper on these bowl games I think if the amounts. Of bulls making them may be. Not mean as much to folks especially when each year some of the ridiculous. Name only via via the pop eyes Bahamas. I think at like five people in the stand by Nolan as a media member load the incumbent upon his balls please let me we'll work on making that happen next year between India. With that beacon.

Yapping at that squirrels say let's world being that then rocky c'mon right if that he get a you have a fantastic day yet suit all right take care gave notice on the college's Davis on the WL TV pinpoint forecast senator. Coming up the tigers are in Orlando what is it feasible and and now. Make it three straight wins the dealer joins us connect you can look at a morning sport it is the addition of it you know person. And it's 547. My thanks to join me for producing this early edition of it you know for the region great news. Some Carrie Fisher. And nothing else to do that. Quickly get to my demand well the LSU tigers are in Orlando. You feel like doing this morning fourth update good. Morning to you Steve thank you Monica good morning everyone the saints have shown a bigger commitment to running the football in 2016. And Mark Ingram is just sixty yards away from achieving its first ever 1000 yard rushing season in the NFL. The Heisman Trophy winning running back a what do you need to get that benchmark against the falcons. You know that are. It was too much about yards and there have been close suburbs are so there's actually go to somebody available or sewer and try my best accomplished well you know sort. Apocalypse. Ingram will also achieve a full sixteen game season for the second time in his pro career by suiting up Sunday in the season finale. Wallboard and Oklahoma have made their way to New Orleans ahead of their Sugar Bowl match up tigers had coached us malls are is that what former LSU defensive coordinator Kevin Steele has meant to or burns deep which is ranked eighteenth in the nation. We felt like joke you know we were close we had some some tile he really put the pieces proposal letter gas ploy they got better. As a year one don't want state healthy. For the most part and he's just a super job along with the the whole defense staff. The Sugar Bowl kick off at 8:30 PM on Monday meanwhile the LSU football team has also made their way to their bowl site destination have begun practicing Orlando Florida for the Citrus Bowl matchup against global. Head coach at notre says that quarterback video link is feeling good coming off a big outing in the season finale against Texas they have them. In which he passed for 344. Yards and two scores. Was third goal of the pocket but he believes it's good to please lose we do ultimately what a quarterback to do. He has a lot of confidence our team have loved golf it was a bit right now. The tigers and cardinals have an early 10 AM kickoff far Saturday. Meanwhile the pelicans troops returns to action tonight to host clippers at 7 PM the birds have won two straight while LA has dropped three in a row. Today at four on sports talk with Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia the guy's a review preview what's aids color it was Deuce McAllister plus group QB to QB with Drew Brees I'm Steve Geller with early morning look at sport so Steve I guess the word is confidence our topic dent with Danny at playing and says the LSU tigers take on. The email whom we'll get like I don't know what gullible your mouth a little Louis and there was this kind of lose you move of all global. Yeah and I think. At least it did us you know he's done a decent job this season there have been moments where come we haven't seen some of his best performance is obviously against. A team like Alabama but. He he will continue to grow in this offense obviously and with the new can't nuke offensive coordinator coming in next season. It will be interest to see if he maintains his role as the tiger starting quarterback or if maybe like a brain and Harris are one of the young freshman coming in. Can take over as the head. Of the tigers' offense with him with new offense quarterback candidate right now Steve and springer still be in a room offense a quarter. It with his feet right so how's that give matchup looking to Citrus Bowl the tide is pulling off. All of you know I think the LSU has a huge advantage over Louisville even though they have the highest ranked but it is the right move move move. Of all over the cardinals even though they have the Heisman Trophy. Winner. At their quarterback I just have the I have more faith in the tigers' offensive line and a defense of light in the match up and think that the being stronger a fraud on both sides is gonna end up working and Ellis he's fever plus. Gary's guys looking to take over as the main guy at running back now that letter for nets out to picture all right what about confidence and faith in the pelicans making it three straight wins yet night. And it as a booking a initially at the match up the LA clippers are one of the better teams in the Western Conference so it will definitely be ate half time for the fellows who were trying to get back into that playoff conversation. But right now Chris Paul banged up for the clippers he's got a hamstring injury and is questionable tonight. All one of their main pieces being out could definitely help the hell's get that third straight win tonight which hopefully they can do. Talking fingers are across to see them yet they're brought hope will be playing many at that he gave it highlights the motto we'll talk about that absolutely looking forward to thank you Stephen drove great today. Will coming up we'll have another check of I'll Wednesday called day forecast. And how local France's deadliest fans sighed remembering plants in the market and that's all coming up.

We may have been waking up and hearing this about Betty YED you saw her picture no she's not dead to. Let me stop that right now she's alive with what we now. But there's this whole movement. Quotes who leave bitty light alone. And for many this year 2016 can't come to an end soon enough. But Twitter was just really just all at sweeten the buzz last night begging 2016. The year. To leave. Betty White alone. Of the year. Billy can respond or not. But they're saying look this too many notable beloved celebrities passing like Carrie Fisher David Donnelly. Friends Mohammed colleague George Michael just this week George Michael and out Carrie Fisher so the fans of the 94 year old Betty White. I still concerned because of her seat. And that. The grim reaper will have its just. Icy grip on her throat that they took to to Twitter at Twitter and with 50000 tweets and went out last night. Begging Betty to do apart and to be very careful. I know what you have planned this week Betty but be careful. One tweet beef to fine Betty. And put her in a secure storage facility with 24 seven maximum security 2016. Will not take car. Am. One fan even went so far is to tweet and start eagle fund to me campaign to help Betty White. And save par from 2016. With the goal of raising some 2000. Dollars. Everybody come down though I didn't hear about the campaign to keep a Britney Spears alive because again that was also. A Twitter report our FaceBook report that she had died that's not true she's still alive. And finally firefighters coming to the rescue they did but it wasn't to see the kitten stuck in victory this time it was. For a drone. A drone that needed rescuing a little nine year old Vaughn was flying his gizmo in a tree just after getting it for Christmas. And members of the western Colorado family try to knock it down a football. So he would try to climb the tree. Nothing worked so what they did was they decided that it was time to call authorities they called 911 and they came and they got it.
