The 2020 college football bowl schedule has been announced, and though it’s been altered (like everything else this year) by the pandemic, there’s a full slate of games all the way from Dec. 21 to the national championship game on Jan. 11.

Sure, the Rose Bowl’s being held at Jerry World and the New Mexico Bowl will be in nearby Frisco, Texas. There’s also the occasional COVID-related cancellation, including the Texas Bowl which was to be the final Dec. 31 game.

Here’s when and how to watch all the bowl games, starting with the College Football Playoff.

How to live stream college football: Best streaming services for college football live streams

Looking to stream college football live? These are the Daily Dot’s guides to essential channels for college football live streams this season:

And here are the streaming services to stream college football live.

Hulu Live TV

Hulu Live TV is a great way to stream live TV, as it comes with access to Hulu’s massive library of on-demand content. You’ll be able to choose from movies, shows, and Hulu’s original programming, and keep up with what’s new each month. Hulu plans even include a bundle option where you can access Disney+ and ESPN+ along with Hulu.

Hulu Live TV’s sports coverage includes the full suite of ESPN channels (including ESPN2, ESPNews, ESPNU, and ESPN College Extra), FS1 and FS2), NBSCN, and the SEC Network. In other words, it sets you up well to stream college football. Hulu’s also got you covered for news and entertainment in its nearly 70-channel package.

Sling TV

If you’re looking for a streamlined, cost-effective streaming package, check out Sling TV. It offers two basic cable packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue, each of which costs $30 per month. There’s also the third option of getting Sling Orange + Blue for just $45 per month. You’ll get more Sling TV channels by choosing Sling Blue, with its 40 channels including sports favorites like FS1 and NBCSN and cable mainstays like Food Network and Discovery Channel. But Sling Orange brings must-haves Disney Channel and ESPN as part of its package.

There’s also a Sports Extras option available for Sling Orange + Blue subscribers, with ACC Network, SEC Network, MLB Network, NBA TV, and NHL Network part of the 19-channel plan. (If you have to choose between a Sling Orange plan and Sling Blue plan, Orange sets you up better for college football.

Orange + Blue$50


FuboTV started as a streaming service geared toward sports fans. It’s since evolved into a broadly-appealing option with entertainment and news options alongside its robust sports choices. It starts at $54.99 a month, and depending on the package, you can access as many as 180+ FuboTV channels. Fubo can entertain you with Bravo, IFC, MTV, and VH1 at even Fubo’s most basic tier.

The Fubo channel list still includes plenty of sports, including the Fubo Sports Network, which has original programming mixing sports and humor. Fubo added the ESPN suite of channels in an agreement that also brought ABC and the Disney Channel. Pretty much every sports channel you could think of is available through Fubo, including BeIN Sports, CBS Sports Network, and TUDN. Fubo sets you up well to stream college football.

If you’re already looking to AT&T for your wireless needs, you might consider AT&T TV Now to cover streaming for you. AT&T TV Now channels start with Plus and Max, which even include HBO. Then, AT&T plans expand from there, approaching cable selection and pricing with AT&T TV Now’s biggest packages. AT&T streaming also comes with Cloud DVR, letting you record up to 20 hours of TV per month.

At its most basic Plus tier, you can find sports staples like ESPN, ESPN2, and FS1. AT&TV TV Now plans include the loaded Ultimate and Premier tiers, as well as the Spanish-language Optimo Mas package. You’ll be able to stream college football, no matter what team, with at least one of the AT&T TV Now plans.

YouTube TV

The YouTube TV channel list includes local channels and plenty to keep kids (and kids at heart) occupied, including Disney Channel and its companion channels, Nickelodeon, and Cartoon Network—all in one easy-to-access package. It even comes with a few Spanish-language channels like Telemundo and NBC Universo. YouTube add-ons include HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz. YouTube TV packages have some advantages over their competitors, including a generous DVR and multiple screens package. From one account, each user can create an individual profile to track favorite shows.

Even though it’s just one plan, it lets you stream college football thanks to its many sports choices. It comes with ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2, and NBCSN at the ready. Deeper sports cuts, like NBA TV, MLB Network, CBS Sports Network, and ESPNU are also part of the YouTube TV plan.

Vidgo offers a package for under $40 a month that pulls together more than 60 English-language channels into its National English Package. Its channels include ABC, Fox, the ESPN family of channels (including ESPN Deportes), and both ACC Network and SEC Network for college football live streaming. But it’s like Fubo in that, even though it started out for streaming sports, it carries a lot more now. There’s even a Social TV platform that allows you to chat with other Vidgo viewers about what you’re watching.

There’s also two Latino options featuring ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, and TyC sports at both levels. At the Plus level on the English side, you get NFL RedZone and all the Pac-12 Network regional options.
