Joe Burrow told Peach Bowl media this morning that he’s battling a ‘little cold’ before excusing himself to go to the bathroom during media availability in Atlanta.

Here’s your official Peach Bowl storyline.

This comes a day after Burrow put on a shooting clinic in a battle between LSU and Oklahoma. Is Burrow being overextended during his Peach Bowl stay? Has Burrow been around too many germs? What is LSU doing to combat the viruses? These are all stories NOLA TV stations should be all over:
