How to stream Texas vs. Oklahoma, Florida vs. LSU, and college football’s other must-see Week 7 games

Now we’re getting into the nitty-gritty.

2019’s college football season is about halfway through, and we’ve largely held at chalk with no major upsets of any kind. For the first time ever, the preseason AP poll’s top 6 are still in place going into Week 7, with no significant drops. Only Alabama and Clemson have exchanged spots as the top two teams in America. In fact, aside from Clemson’s questionable showing versus an aggressive yet average North Carolina team, none of the teams have been tested to any extent.

This will change this week, starting early with the Red River Rivalry, as No. 6 Oklahoma takes on No. 11 Texas. This matchup features more heat than in previous seasons, given what’s at stake for both teams. Heisman candidate Jalen Hurts leads the Sooners, who want to ensure passage into the College Football Playoff. He’s been overwhelmingly dominant; he’s the only quarterback ranked among the nation’s top 25 rushers with 499 yards. If that wasn’t enough, he’s sixth in the nation in passing, putting up over 300 yards a game with an eye-popping 75.2 completion percentage. Rugged Texas signal-caller Sam Ehlinger and a talented defense will have to put in yeoman’s work to guide a resurgent Longhorn program back into its former elite status. 

No. 7 Florida at No. 5  LSU features the launch of the high-stakes, tough-sledding portion of the SEC schedule. LSU is the favorite, but QB Joe Burrows will have a tough time negotiating space against the Gators’ fearsome front seven. ESPN’s Football Power Index significantly favors LSU, with a 76 percent chance to win on Saturday night in Baton Rouge. However, expect a serious challenge in Death Valley.

Here’s everything you need to know—a full slate of games, network coverage, and how to stream all the action—about Week 7 in college football, which kicks off Wednesday evening.

College football 2019 schedule: Live stream

The following services, save for ESPN+, offer a one-week free trial and all carry ESPN and FS1. The full schedule of games is below.

1) Sling TV

Sling TV

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.

Spanish-speaking viewers have quite a few options. For bilingual families, you might consider the Español: Best of Spanish TV package for either Sling Orange or Sling Blue for 24/7 specialty channel LaLiga TV and beIN SPORTS Connect: Channels 4-9, which features matches from LaLiga, Ligue 1, and Copa del Rey, among others. Both packages cost $5 per month after your free trial. Sling TV Latino is another Spanish-language package for $10 per month, including NBC Universo, History en Español, and—of import to soccer fans—four beIN SPORTS channels. (And choosing Sling TV Latino + Sling Orange for $30 per month gives you access to ESPN Deportes.) For more information, check out our guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.

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.
