QB Johnson fights through injury in Kentucky's near comeback
If Richardson hauls in the pass from Johnson, we are having a completely different conversation but that wasn't the case. On the other sideline Kentucky ends their season at 7-6 for a second straight year and second straight bowl loss.

Kid, parents ring in the "Noon Year"
For parents with kids excited for 2018, there's a New Year's Eve celebration that is just for them. They then handed out more than 100 balloon rockets at 11 a.m. and let the kids shoot them off.
We ended 2017 by tying a record cold New Year's Eve. People venturing outdoors tonight will need to dress for the extremely cold conditions. Cover as much of your bare skin as possible to prevent frost bite. In addition with these frigid temperatures and little recovery during the daytime hours this could cause problems for exposed plumbing pipes.
