College Bowl Games - TV Schedule & Online Streaming
To compliment these two resources, more specific TV and streaming options are detailed below.
TV Viewing Options for all Bowl Games:
ESPN, ESPN2, ABC, CBS, CBSSN,FOX, FS1
Click on any of those station links to see a full list of options, including which games will be airing on those channels and cable provider plans that carry that particular channel.
ESPN will be airing a vast majority of all college football bowl games. To get ESPN you will need a cable provider of some kind, like Spectrum or Xfinity, a satellite provider such as DirecTV or Dish, or one of the popular cord cutting services like DirecTV Now, Sling TV, Youtube TV or Fubo TV (to name a few).
Whichever route you go, try and aim for a plan that includes all these channels. This checkbox will help with that.
This info can also be useful if you already have a cable package and need to see what airs when and where, or perhaps if another provider entices you to make a switch, if your current plan is lacking in channel line up.
Online Options for all Bowl Games:
Watch ESPN, CBSSN, Fox Sports GO
Watch ESPN app will give you access to most every college bowl game (ESPN,ESPN2 and all ABC broadcast bowl games.)
All you need is to sign in with cable credentials (yours or perhaps a family member or friends account?). Live access, on-demand instant replay and highlight recaps are included as well. Good stuff.
CBSSN gives you access to any bowl games on CBS or CBSSN, if you have cable. Just use your login credentials and choose your provider from that link to stream live.
FOXSportsGO is the streaming option for the few games that will be airing on FOX or FS1. Same rules apply; you need cable but the service is free with login info.
