Eight-year-old Drake Quibodeaux of Vinton has an inoperable brain tumor. When asked what he wanted for Christmas, he made a simple request for Christmas cards. The nation has responded and his mother, Danielle, said the show of support has been amazing.
"We counted what we've already opened and it was at 34,000. We have lots more to open and I just got word that we've got 19 crates on the way from the mail," said Drake's mother.

For the first time in the 125-year history of LSU Football, the Tigers will play in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona on New Year's Day and they'll face UCF, who has won 25 in a row. Coach Ed Orgeron says his team deserved to play in a New Year's Six Bowl game.
"These guys started off unknown throughout the season, had some very big wins throughout the season, we jelled as a football team and this is a great reward for our football team," said Orgeron.
