What is Cortaca Jug?

Billed as "the biggest little game in the nation" by Sports Illustrated many years ago, the annual Cortland-Ithaca football contest has perennially been one of the top draws in NCAA Division III football for the past two decades.

While the rivalry dates back to 1930, the Cortaca Jug has been awarded to the winner annually since 1959.
