FuboTV is arguably the best streaming service for sports fans, especially if you’re interested in international soccer. But there’s one glaring issue with the service: It doesn’t carry anything from ESPN. That’s a deal breaker for most college bowl games, but it does carry all of the major broadcast networks, FS1 and FS2, Big Ten Network, and plenty more. (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)

YouTube TV offers a comprehensive streaming package for sports fans that’s close to what you’ll find on Hulu with Live TV.

If you happen to be an AT&T Unlimited customer, you’ll save $25 per month on whichever package you choose. (You can view the full DirecTV Now channels list here.)

Celebration Bowl 2018: Why it matters
North Carolina AT&T (9-2), which has won the Celebration Bowl in two of the past three seasons, has showcased a stout defense this year, holding three of its opponents to less than a touchdown. But Alcorn State (9-3) has scored at least 30 points six times this year, including a 78-0 drubbing of LA College. It’ll be the typical tough offense vs. tough defense matchup, and it should be a blast to watch.
