"STARKVILLE, Miss. — The president of Mississippi State, Mark E. Keenum, canceled Thursday’s classes months ago in anticipation of a night game against No. 3 Louisiana State. Early Wednesday morning, fans began lining a grassy area known as the Junction, waiting for a chapel bell to ring at 5 p.m. so they could officially begin tailgating more than 24 hours before kickoff. Before the game, and not far from the all-day revelry, construction workers will break ground on a $25 million football training facility." -New York Times
