The 63rd annual Cortaca Jug football game between SUNY Cortland and Ithaca College kicks off at noon on Nov. 12 at Yankee Stadium in New York City.
Of course, you probably already knew that.
What you might not realize Is that the game caps a full week of related student events planned for Cortaca Week on campus, Including a pep rally, a carnival and a watch party.
Fans of this annual Division III rivalry competition, known as “The Biggest Little Game In the Nation,” who don’t plan to make the trip to Yankee Stadium can watch the game on YES Network, the most-watched regional sports network in the United States.
Non-subscribers will be able to view a live stream of the game at ICTV.org, Ithaca College’s student-run television production organization. Fans can also follow the action online via WICB, Ithaca College’s student-run radio station with live stats from the Ithaca College athletics website.
Ithaca is the home team for the contest. Both teams are undefeated this season as they head to the second Cortaca Jug to be played in a professional sports stadium. The 2019 edition of Cortaca Jug, hosted at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, set the all-time Division III attendance record with more than 45,000 fans. Cortaca 2022 will mark the first time Yankee Stadium will host an all-New York State college football game since Syracuse defeated Army, 27-15, on Nov. 7, 1964.
