The Appalachian State vs. Middle Tennessee State contest features a pair of teams that, though they couldn’t beat opponents from the Power 5 conferences this year, did just fine in their own conferences to give them a reason to play each other in the New Orleans Bowl live stream. It’s going to be an emotional farewell in the Crescent City—don’t miss it.

  • Location: Mercedes-Benz Superdome

New Orleans Bowl: How to watch online for free

1) Hulu with Live TV

Hulu with Live TV
  • Cost: $44.95 per month
  • Hulu devices: Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick and Fire TV, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Nintendo Switch, and iOS and Android devices
  • Local channels: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW (check your local availability here)

Hulu with Live TV is a one-stop shop for streaming entertainment. Every subscription comes with free access to Hulu’s deep catalog of on-demand TV shows, 2018 new releases, funny movies, and Hulu original series. That’s in addition to 50-plus channels that include everything you need to stream college bowl games: ESPN and ESPN 2, FS1 and FS2, ABC, Fox, and CBS Sports Network, not to mention SEC Network and Big Ten Network. (Here’s a complete guide to Hulu Live TV channels.)


2) Sling TV

Sling TV

On paper, Sling TV is your cheapest bet for streaming the 2018 college bowl games. At just $25 per month, Sling Orange offers a suite of ESPN channels, but FS1 and FS2, local channels, and regional sports networks are frustratingly locked behind Sling Blue, also $25 per month. The good news: You can combine the two (Sling Orange + Blue) for just $40 per month. While Sling TV doesn’t carry ABC or CBS Sports Network, new subscribers are eligible to receive a free HD antenna. If you really want to go all-in, be sure to add the Sling Blue Sports Extra pack. It costs an extra $10 per month but gets you Pac-12 Network, NFL RedZone, and specialty channels like NBA TV, beIN Sports, and NHL Network. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels.) 


3) PlayStation Vue

PlayStation Vue

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need a PlayStation to use PlayStation Vue. The streaming service works with Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, and even Kodi. It’s a tad more expensive than other options, but it offers four different tiers of channels that provide plenty of variety. (Here are all of PlayStation Vue channels.)


4) YouTube TV

YouTube TV

YouTube TV offers a comprehensive streaming package for sports fans that’s close to what you’ll find on Hulu with Live TV. One notable difference in YouTube’s favor is the addition of specialty channels like NBA TV and MLB Network. But it’s unlimited cloud DVR and the ability to split each account with six other people that makes YouTube TV worth considering. (You can find the full list of YouTube TV channels here.) 


New Orleans Bowl: Why it matters

Appalachian State has won 10 of its last 11 games, and MTSU blasted through seven of its eight Conference USA opponents to finish with an 8-5 record. Appalachian State has never lost a bowl game at the FBS level, but it might run into an MTSU team filled with emotion as senior quarterback Brent Stockstill plays the final game of his college career under his father, MTSU head coach Rick Stockstill.
