ITHACA, N.Y. –Tickets for the 57th annual Cortaca Jug football game between Ithaca College and Cortland have officially sold out.

The contest, one of the longest-running Division III rivalries in the country, kicks off Saturday at noon at Butterfield Stadium, and more than 10,000 fans are expected to show up for the game.

Tickets are required for admission into the stadium. Since the contest is sold out, no tickets will be available for fans of either school in the days leading up to the game.

Fans of both schools will be able to follow the action live on Time Warner Cable Sports, as the game will be broadcast across New York State on channel 325.

Time Warner’s coverage will include the following areas: Ithaca, Cortland, Syracuse, Binghamton, Elmira, Potsdam, and Utica.

The game is being broadcast on ICTV, which can be viewed both on channel 325, and online here. Additionally, WICB radio will broadcast the game here, and live stats from the clash are available here.

Ithaca (4-5, 2-5 Empire 8) and Cortland (7-2, 5-2) have met every year since 1948, but the Cortaca Jug was not officially introduced to the rivalry until 1959.

The Bombers lead the all-time series 39-30-3, including a 34-22 edge in Cortaca Jug contests, although Cortland has claimed the last five games.
