The Jug is back on the campus of Ithaca College as the Bombers defeated the Cortland Red Dragons, 34-17, in the 63rd Cortaca Jug Game on a sunny Saturday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.
With the victory, Ithaca capped off the regular season with a 10-0 record for the first time since 1986.
The Bombers led 17-7 at the half, but Cortland would not go away quietly as they made it a three-point game early in the fourth quarter before the Red Dragons pulled away.
Ithaca quarterback A.J. Wingfield completed 18-of-20 passes for 209 yards with three touchdowns. Jake Williams, Michael Anderson, and Julien Deumaga all caught touchdown passes. Williams also carried the ball 10 times for 70 yards and a score.
Cortland quarterback Zac Boyes completed 13-of-29 passes for 117 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. He also gained 148 yards on the ground on 15 carries. Jaden Alfanostjohn and JJ Laap scored the only touchdowns.
