The 79th annual Hyundai Sun Bowl is TODAY!! Here are a couple of things you need to know about the game and about tonight!

First of all, THE rowdiest most rockin' tailgate party ever starts soon (12/31/12) hosted by KLAQs Scott Ronson!  You'll find Scotty high atop the parking garage at Mesa and Glory Road.  The party starts at 9 with vendors, live entertainment and chances for you to win free KLAQ Cds, T-shirts and Sun Bowl tickets!

Second, there are some areas under construction that you might want to avoid. Click the link to see where!

Kickoff is at Noon so ... as we get closer to Noon ... all the areas around UTEP are going to start getting congested.  Avoid those areas if you can!!  (Stuck at work and an can't go?  Click here for coverage!)

After the game, get out tonight and celebrate your teams win ... or cry over the loss ... at Lotus Club downtown.  Bands, DJs, tents, food and more for partiers 18 and up!  There will even be a ball drop at midnight, turning downtown El Paso into our very own Times Square!

Starting tonight at 8, Johnnie Walker has something pretty cool lined up for you also here on KLAQ!

One last very important thing!  DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE!!  If you find yourself needing a ride home here in El Paso, call 877-366-7604 or click here.  Cabs are better than cop cars!

Be safe, have fun and thanks for rockin' with The Q in 2012.  I hope 2013 is the best year ever for you ... I can't wait to rock it for you! 

Happy New Year!!!!!!!
