STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in Starkville as Mississippi State University (MSU) prepares to take on its first SEC opponent this season, the LSU Tigers.
Fans started filing into Mississippi's College Town on Thursday afternoon.
Whit Stuckey is the owner of Moe's Original Bar-B-Que in downtown Starkville.
He said he's expecting to have two to three thousand receipts this weekend. The barbecue joint usually sees around one thousand.
“We’ll have a line out the door," he explained. "The place will be full and it just kind of stays like that all through the weekend, so any time we have SEC conference play, it’s awesome.”
He said conference football showdowns are big weekends for the town.
With kickoff at 11 AM, Stuckey encouraged anyone wanting some food before, during, or after the game to call ahead to availability to help the restaurant.
