How Cord Cutters Can Watch College Football




American Football is back as college football is underway around the United States. This year more than ever cord cutters have great options to stream a ton of great college football legally!

Here is how you can stream college football on your Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV!


The first thing you need is Sling TV to access ESPN. With their basic $20 package you receive ESPN and ESPN2. For just $5 more you get ESPNU, ESPN News, SEC Network, and ESPN Goal Line. Sling TV also gives you access to the Watch ESPN app with your Sling TV subscription, giving you access to all the ESPN3 content.

Watch ESPN will also give you access to games that are played on ABC for anyone who lives in an area where ABC is hard to pick up over the air.

Over The Air

With Fox, CBS, NBC, and ABC all carrying college football games in prime time and throughout the day on Saturday one of the best ways to get college football is via an antenna. To find what stations you can receive with a particular antenna go to From there you should check out if one of the Mohu antennas is a good fit for you.


If you have a Roku, look into the Livestream channel. It is free, and many Division II and III schools stream their games through Livestream. So, if you’re a fan of a school in Division II or III, make sure you check out the Livestream site and download their app on your Roku.


Of course, sadly, some networks like the Pac 12 and Big Ten do not make their networks available for legal streaming. So, the few times a year your team is on BTN or the Pac12 Network, visit your local sports bar or a friend’s house.

The good news is most games, especially the big ones, are now available on ESPN, ABC, Fox CBS, and NBC; making these games now available to cord cutters.
