This would be my logic too, but I'd bet on Friday rather than Saturday and get people coming into college towns for weekend sportis activities. Students leaving town for the weekend would also generally try to leave on Friday, not Saturday.

BTW, when I've checked schedules, I've noticed that DL has fewer flights/seats to/from ITH on Saturday compared to weekdays.
