THE MATCHUP: Cortland hosts Ithaca in the annual Cortaca Jug rivalry game – one of the country’s top Division III games each year and once referred to as “The Biggest Little Game in the Nation” by Sports Illustrated.

THE SERIES: This is the 60th time that Cortland and Ithaca are playing for the Cortaca Jug. The schools actually started playing in 1930 and have met every year since 1948. Ithaca leads the overall series 40-33-3. In 1959, friends and team captains Tom Decker of Cortland and Dick Carmean of Ithaca originated the Cortaca Jug as the prize for the winner of the game between the schools located about 20 miles apart on Route 13.

The original jug was purchased at a yard sale. Each year, the game’s result is printed on the Jug. The first Jug ran out of room for scores in the mid-1980s, necessitating a second Jug. That Jug ran out of room for scores after the 2015 season, and a third Jug was created to list the scores beginning in 2016.

Ithaca leads the Jug series 35-24, which does not include the Bombers’ 1988 NCAA playoff win over the Red Dragons. Cortland, however, is 14-8 versus the Bombers since 1996, including wins in seven straight seasons from 2010-16.

Ithaca broke that run last year with a 48-20 victory in Ithaca. The Bombers scored touchdowns on their first four possessions on the way to a 34-6 halftime lead and held off a brief Cortland second-half rally. Ithaca quarterback Wahid Nabi completed 27-of-37 passes for 329 yards and a school-record six touchdowns. Will Gladney caught five passes for 91 yards and two scores, Andrew Vito finished with 10 catches for 116 yards and a touchdown, and Jared BauerJack Yule and JR Zazzara each caught a scoring pass.

Cortland quarterback Steven Ferreira was 15-of-35 passing for 164 yards and also ran 13 times for 58 yards and two touchdowns. Alex Wasserman caught seven passes for 106 yards. Mark DeLuise led the Red Dragons with 12 tackles and an interception and Brandon Lewis had 10 tackles. Kenny Bradley led Ithaca with eight tackles. Ithaca outgained Cortland 410-292 in total offense, including 307-104 in the first half.

For two years (2015 and 2016) the teams met as Empire 8 foes. Ithaca, however, joined the Liberty League in 2017. Prior to 2015, Cortland was a member of the New Jersey Athletic Conference from 2000-14 and an independent before that. Cortland clinched the 2015 Empire 8 title with an 11-8 win at Ithaca.

In 2014, Cortland won at home over the Bombers, 23-20, in one of the most wild and memorable finishes in the rivalry’s history. The Red Dragons trailed 20-17 and were lining up for a potential game-tying field goal with no timeouts left and the clock winding down. Holder Luke Hinton was late getting on the field, and was actually looking back at the kicker when a low snap hit him in the leg. Hinton recovered, rolled to his left and threw the game-winning TD pass to Mannix as time expired. The play was recognized as the nation’s number-three play on ESPN’s SportsCenter Top 10 that evening.

Of the last 21 games in the series (1997-2017), 15 have been decided by eight points or less. In the previous 59 Cortaca Jug games, Cortland is 7-4 in games decided by 1-3 points and 11-7 in games decided by 4-8 points, but Ithaca is 8-3 when the margin is 9-16 points and 16-3 when a team wins by 17 or more.

It was announced on Wednesday that the 2019 Cortaca Jug game will be played in MetLife Stadium, the home of the New York Jets and New York Giants.

CORTLAND CAPSULE:  Cortland’s bid at the Empire 8 title came up just short as the Red Dragons lost 21-16 at nationally third-ranked Brockport last weekend in a “winner-take-all” game for the league crown. Cortland has the ball at Brockport’s 11-yard line but had a pass intercepted in the end zone with seven seconds left.

Cortland took an early 7-0 lead when Dylan Dubuque blocked a punt that Chris Monteiro returned 10 yards for a score. Brockport led 14-7 after one quarter, but the Red Dragons fought back with a Nick Mongelli 26-yard field goal in the second quarter and a Johnnie Akins 16-yard TD run early in the third – the first rushing score allowed by the Golden Eagles this season. Brockport scored what held up as the game-winning TD on a 3-yard pass midway through the third quarter.

Akins ran for 92 yards against a run defense ranked first nationally at minus-19.5 yards allowed per game. Brett Segala was 24-of-44 passing for 171 yards and Trevor Ash caught six passes for 48 yards. Isaac Hicks III made a team-high 12 tackles and intercepted a pass, and Gregory Alfieri also registered an interception.

Despite the loss, Cortland has clinched second place in the Empire 8 standings with a 5-2 mark and will play in the New York Bowl for the second straight season. The Red Dragons won the inaugural New York Bowl last year with a 35-28 win at Union. Cortland will host a Liberty League school to be determined in this year’s contest Nov. 17.

Segala is 168-of-286 passing this season for 2,510 yards and 25 touchdowns but has been intercepted 14 times, including five times last week. Akins averages 70.9 yards per game on the ground with five scores and Jake Smith has caught 42 passes for 807 yards and nine touchdowns. Hicks and Kyle Richard lead the team with 66 and 62 tackles, respectively. The Red Dragons have intercepted 16 passes this fall, with Brandon Lewis and D’monte Woody leading the way with three apiece. Alfieri and Dan Appley each have 10 or more tackles for loss.

Nick Mongelli is 8-for-9 on field goal attempts, with four makes from 39 yards or farther, and he’s 44-for-47 on PAT kicks. Mongelli also averages 35.4 yards per punt with more than a third of his kicks pinning opponents inside the 20-yard line. Cole Burgess is averaging 29.8 yards per kickoff return with two touchdowns and Brandon Lewis averages 9.1 yards per punt return.

Head coach Dan MacNeill is in his 22nd season with the Red Dragons. His overall record of 147-81 (.645) ranks him first at Cortland in career victories and winning percentage. He was the 2015 HERO Sports National Coach of the Year and the D3football.com East Region Coach of the Year, and he and his assistants were chosen as the Empire 8 Coaching Staff of the Year. In addition, he’s been the New Jersey Athletic Conference Coach of the Year in both 2008 and 2012, and also was a finalist for Liberty Mutual National Division III Coach of the Year honors in 2008 after leading the Red Dragons to the league title and the NCAA quarterfinals.

MacNeill has guided Cortland to six NCAA playoff appearances (1997, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2015), eight ECAC bowl games (most recently in 2016), and a win in the inaugural New York Bowl in 2017. His 2008 squad was honored with the Lambert Meadowlands Trophy and the ECAC Div. III Team of the Year awards. MacNeill is a 1979 Cortland alumnus and played linebacker and defensive tackle from 1975-78. Previously an assistant coach at Division I-AA Villanova University for 13 years, MacNeill is Cortland’s 11th head coach since the school’s modern era of football began in 1924. He joined the Villanova staff in 1984, and he served as linebackers coach and was the team’s defensive coordinator from 1988-96.

A LOOK AT…ITHACA COLLEGE: Ithaca wrapped up Liberty League play in second place with a 4-1 mark after winning at Hobart, 10-3, last Saturday. The Bombers were one play away this season from winning the league title as their lone league loss was a 10-9 setback to champion RPI after a potential winning two-point conversion failed with no time remaining. Ithaca’s other loss this fall was a 13-7 decision at home to nationally ranked Brockport in early September.

Ithaca continued its season-long defensive dominance with its win at Hobart. The Bombers are allowing only 8.4 points per game, with no opponent able to score more than 14 points. Ithaca erased an early 3-0 deficit with a Kendall Anderson 12-yard TD run late in the third quarter. Brian Fallon added a 19-yard field goal with 10:56 left for the final margin.

Wahid Nabi has connected on 141-of-236 passes (59.8 percent) for 1,516 yards and eight touchdowns with seven interceptions in eight contests. Andrew Vito and Will Gladney have combined for more than 100 receptions this season – Vito has caught 51 passes for 526 yards and three scores and Gladney has 50 receptions for 587 yards and five touchdowns. Anderson has rushed for 55 yards per game with four scores and Isaiah D’Haiti has eight rushing touchdowns despite only 224 total rushing yards.

Pat Minogue paces the Ithaca defense with 74 tackles, including 10.5 for loss, eight pass breakups, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Minogue also is the Bombers’ punter averaging 35.8 yards per kick. Nick Garone has totaled 62 tackles and Brien Pacholec is the team leader with 4.5 sacks. Fallon is 4-for-7 on field goal attempts, with a long of 42 yards, and is 21-of-23 on PAT kicks.

Dan Swanstrom is in his second season as Ithaca’s head coach. The 10th head coach in program history, and only the third since 1967, Swanstrom has a record of 15-5 (.750) entering the Cortaca Jug game. Last season he led the Bombers to an 8-3 overall record, capped by a 27-17 win over Salisbury in the ECAC Scotty Whitelaw Bowl.

Swanstrom was the quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Pennsylvania from 2014-16, and from 2008-13 he progressed from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator to associate head coach at Johns Hopkins University. His collegiate coaching career began as an assistant at the University of Redlands in California from 2006-08. Swanstrom is a Texas native and a 2005 graduate of Rhodes College (Tenn.), where he was a two-time captain, the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year, and a Gagliardi Trophy finalist.

NOTEBOOK:

* Cortland senior linebacker Kyle Richard will be featured on both ESPN’s SportsCenter and in a story on ESPN.com during Cortaca Weekend. Richard has been an outspoken advocate for the victims of sexual assault after being shot in both legs while interrupting a sexual assault in progress in the summer of 2017 on Long Island. Richard received the Biden Courage Award for Bystander Intervention from former Vice President Joe Biden last April, among other honors. An ESPN writer and TV crew came to Cortland last Thursday to interview Richard and some of his teammates, along with head coach Dan MacNeill. Tentatively the story is expected to appear online the day before the Cortaca Jug game and the feature story is expected to air on SportsCenter Saturday morning.

* Among the halftime honorees Saturday will be Cortland’s 1988 and 2008 teams, as well a handful of players who appeared in the first Cortaca Jug game in 1959. This year is the 30th anniversary of the 1988 team that went 10-0 in the regular season (11-1 overall) and advanced to the NCAA Division III quarterfinals, and it’s the 10th anniversary of the 2008 squad that finished 11-2 (9-1 regular season) and also made it to the NCAA quarterfinals (tournament was 16 teams in 1988 and 32 teams in 2008). The 2008 team won the Lambert Meadowlands Award and was named the ECAC Division III Team of the Year.

Tentatively scheduled to appear from the first Cortaca Jug game are former Cortland players Norman Preston ’61, Bob Hudak ’62, Dick Brogowski ’62 and Bill Yelverton ’63, along with Ithaca’s Dick Carmean – the co-founder of the Cortaca Jug (co-founder Tom Decker ’61 passed away in 2015).

Brett Segala’s 2,510 passing yards are a new school regular-season record, eclipsing the previous mark of 2,448 yards by Steven Ferreira set in nine games in 2015 (he missed one game due to injury). Counting postseason games in 2015, Ferreira threw for a school-record 3,127 yards in 11 contests.

* Sophomore Dylan Dubuque was named the Empire 8 Football Special Teams Athlete of the Week for the week ending Nov. 4 after he blocked a punt that Cortland returned for a touchdown during the Red Dragons’ 21-16 loss at nationally third-ranked Brockport. Dubuque is currently second on Cortland’s squad with nine special teams tackles (eight on kickoffs, one on a punt return). Alex Wasserman leads the Red Dragons with 10 special teams tackles (nine on kickoffs).

* Cortland has blocked six kicks this fall. Dylan Dubuque and Brendan Maloney each blocked a punt at Brockport last week. Maloney and Jake Smith each have two blocks this season (Maloney also blocked a punt vs. Morrisville State; Smith blocked a field goal against Buffalo State and a punt at Alfred). Zach Tripodi blocked a PAT kick at Utica. Cortland has recorded at least six blocks each of the last three seasons. The Red Dragons blocked eight kicks last year and had nine blocks in 2016, which tied the school single-season record also accomplished in 2005 and 2010.

Cole Burgess has returned two kickoffs for touchdowns this fall – a 95-yard return versus Framingham State on Sept. 8 and a 97-yard return versus St. John Fisher Oct. 27. He is only the second player in school history with at least two kickoff returns for scores in the same season. Dylan Peebles returned three kickoffs for touchdowns in 2014, including one in the Cortaca Jug game, and Peebles also holds the school record with five career kickoff return TDs from 2013-15.

* Senior wide receiver Jake Smith leads Cortland with 42 catches for 807 yards and nine touchdowns this season. His string of eight straight games with at least one TD catch (one shy of the school record) ended versus St. John Fisher. Smith currently ranks second at Cortland with 29 career TD catches (one behind John Babin’s 30 from 2010-11, 13-14), third with 2,515 career receiving yards (Babin is first with 2,635 and Jon Mannix (2012-16) is second with 2,569), and fifth with 143 career catches (Mannix leads with 188).

* Cortland has scored 372 points through nine games for an average of 41.3 points per contest. The school record for single-season scoring average is 38.0 points per game by the 1990 squad in 10 regular-season contests (school and NCAA records only began including postseason games in 2002).

* The Cortland defense has contributed to Cortland’s high point total this fall with three interception returns for touchdowns – D’monte Woody vs. Framingham State (59 yards), Denarii Beard at Utica (58 yards), and Kyle Richard vs. Morrisville St. (58 yards). The school single-season record for “pick sixes” is four during the 2012 season.

Nick Mongelli has made 44 PAT kicks (in 47 attempts) this season. He currently is third at Cortland for most PAT kicks in a season. Jeffrey Lang holds the record with 49 PAT kicks in 2008, followed by Marc Corrado with 46 in 2010.

* Through nine games, 16 different Cortland players have caught at least one pass, including 11 different receivers alone in Week 1 at Fitchburg State. Since 1969, the most Cortland players with at least one catch in an entire season is 17 in 2010.

* Cortland has scored on 78.5 percent of its trips into the “red zone” (at or inside the opponent’s 20-yard line) this season. Cortland has scored 33 times in 42 trips with 27 touchdowns and six field goals. Of the nine “failed” red zone trips, three came due to game ending. Cortland has held opponents to 69 percent scoring success in the red zone (20-of-29 with 16 touchdowns and four field goals).

* Cortland is 6-4 all-time in overtime games, with its most recent OT game a 20-17 win at home versus Alfred last year. All 10 of Cortland’s overtime games have been decided in the first extra session. Cortland and Ithaca have played two overtime games, with Cortland winning 37-30 at Ithaca in 2005 on an Alex Smith TD pass to Anthony Morat, followed by a Stef Sair interception, and 23-20 at home in 2006 when Bill Hauser picked off a pass and Matthew Mintz made a 40-yard field goal.

* Former Cortland defensive lineman Jake Ceresna just finished his second season in the Canadian Football League (CFL). He played in 18 games this past year for the Edmonton Eskimos and recorded eight sacks, tied for second on the team, and 32 total tackles. Ceresna played 14 games for the Ottawa Redblacks in 2017. The New Fairfield, Conn. native played in 33 games at Cortland from 2013-15 and recorded 142 career tackles, including 14.5 sacks and 39.5 total tackles for loss.

* Cortland is its fourth season in the Empire 8 this fall. The Red Dragons joined the league in 2015 after 15 seasons in the New Jersey Athletic Conference. Cortland finished in at least a tie for first in the NJAC six times (2005-08, 2010, 2012) and shared the Empire 8 crown in 2015. Four current Empire 8 members – Cortland, Brockport, Buffalo State and Morrisville State – at one point played in the NJAC and are affiliate members of the E8 in football only. The other league teams – Alfred, Hartwick, St. John Fisher and Utica – are full conference members. Ithaca left the Empire 8 after last year to become a full member of the Liberty League, and Buffalo State is set to join the Liberty League in 2019.
