Live stream college football bowl games 2016

The NCAA football bowl schedule this long New Year’s weekend is packed. There are multiple bowl games on Friday, Saturday, and Monday.

That’s more than enough action to keep you entertained in between ringing in the New Year. The schedule and live streams for this weekend’s games is below.

Today’s Live Sports To Stream

If you won’t be near a TV and want to watch college football bowl games online, you have a few options — even if you don’t have cable or a TV login.



How To Live Stream College Football Bowl Games (If You Have Cable)

The schedule below has links to the live stream for each of this weekend’s games. You’ll notice ESPN has a stranglehold on the college football bowl games. There are only a couple airing on other networks: the Sun Bowl on CBS, and the Arizona Bowl on Campus Insiders. Live streaming will be free for both these games.

For the rest, if you have a TV subscription that includes ESPN, that’s great news for you. You can live stream all these games on WatchESPN. If you don’t have a login to use to get access to WatchESPN, keep reading.

How To Watch Bowl Games Online Without Cable

If you don’t have a TV subscription that includes ESPN, you’ll need another way to watch college football bowl games online.




First, there are two internet TV services that include access to ESPN: Sling TV ($20/mo package) and PlayStation Vue ($30/mo package). You can live stream games on ESPN with either of these services, and both of them have a 7-day free trial.

Live Stream College Football Bowls For Free

You may also be able live stream bowl games for free — but stay away from those scummy “free live sports!!!!” sites. There’s a better way.

You can use Kodi to watch live sports online for free. What is Kodi? Briefly, it’s a media player you can use to stream sports, TV episodes, and other content from the internet.

One note — whether Kodi is legal is an issue of debate. Yes, the networks frown upon watching their content for free. Hey, I’m not here to judge. But it is highly recommended you use a VPN with Kodi to stay private and secure.
