The Alcorn State Braves (9-3) travel to Atlanta as reigning Southwestern Athletic Conference champion. Alcorn State meets up with the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference co-champion North Carolina A&T Braves (9-4) on Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the Celebration Bowl.

Alcorn State is led by quarterback Felix Harper (179 of 296, 2,613 yards, 30 TDs, eight interceptions) as one of the best signal-callers in the FCS. The Braves lead the FCS in takeaways with 34 and are No. 1 in the SWAC in both scoring defense (19.7 points per game) and total defense (328.5 yards per game).

Quarterback Kylil Carter (137 of 254, 1,856 yards, 12 TDs, three interceptions; 104 carries, 483 yards, two touchdowns) leads the North Carolina A&T attack from the air and the ground. The Aggie defense, though, ranks No. 3 nationally (FCS) in allowing just 270.4 yards per game.

North Carolina A&T, the bowl’s defending champion, has a 3-1 record in the Celebration Bowl, the third iteration of the game pitting the SWAC vs. MEAC, and earned two of those wins over Alcorn State. 

Here’s how to live stream Alcorn State vs. North Carolina A&T in the Celebration Bowl.

How to stream Alcorn State vs. North Carolina A&T live: Watch the Celebration Bowl

The following services offer a one-week trial.

1) Sling TV

Sling offers a ton of live sports. Sling TV provides two base channel package options, each priced at $25 per month. Sling Orange includes three ESPN channels, while Sling Blue includes sports channels like NFL Network, NBCSN, and local channels. If you’re Team “Why Not Both,” Sling Orange + Blue combines the two for just $40 per month. Sports Extra: Sling Blue ($10 per month) also includes NFL RedZone.

For $10 extra per month, you can get NFL RedZone via the Sling Blue Sports Extra package.


How to use AirTV with Sling

AirTV solves one of Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”

The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.

But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels. While select NFL and college football games (on Fox, FS1, and FS2) are no longer on Sling, you can still catch Fox games with AirTV.


2) Hulu with Live TV
