Football season is an incredibly important time of year for many college towns around America, and Starkville — which markets itself as “Mississippi’s College Town” — is no exception.

The Mississippi State University Bulldogs will play at home seven times during their 2013 campaign, including a Sept. 7 home-opening victory against the Alcorn State Braves and an upcoming Saturday matchup against the Troy University Trojans. Though the days add up to only one week out of a year’s 52, they are of incredible economic importance to the city.
