NY Town Votes Down Suspension of Football Rivalry

CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) — A proposal to suspend a longtime upstate New York college football rivalry for a year after a weekend of destructive celebrations has been voted down.

Local media report that the Cortland Common Council opposed the 2014 ban Tuesday night by a vote of vote of six to two.

The council unanimously approved the creation of a commission that will work to prevent a repeat of the rowdiness that led to last Saturday’s arrests of 80 people, including 19 Cortland students.

Hundreds of people partying in houses in Cortland spilled into the streets after Cortland defeated Ithaca in Ithaca, 28-24, in the annual Cortaca Jug game. The Division III schools are 20 miles apart in central New York, and the game attracts thousands to the region.
