If you love football and happen to live in the state of South Carolina, than the odds are pretty good that you are a huge fan of the Gamecocks. But as much as you would love to see them play in person, there are certain obligations you have in your life that make it near-impossible for that to happen.
Luckily, it doesn’t always have to be that way. Thanks to the internet, we have an abundance of online streaming services (free and paid) that give you a multitude of options for dedicated football fans like you. So without further ado, let’s explore what those options are.
The first and most obvious option is WatchESPN, an online-only service that offers dozens of college football games for you to watch on your laptop and on your smartphone/tablet (via the app). For this though, you would need to have a cable subscription that contains ESPN in order to watch the streams.
This is also the same deal with Fox Sports Go, which also requires access through a cable TV subscription. Unfortunately, Fox Sports Go only offers in-market games, which may serve as a hindrance depending on where you live. You also have ESPN Player, which works the same way as WatchESPN, but is known to be a premium service that isn’t exactly available in some places.
(2) CBS College Sports Live:
There is another paid option for people who only want to shell out money for the season pass: CBS’ College Sports Live. The only caveats here is that CBS coverage of college football is known to be limited.
(3) College Football page on Reddit:
For the football fan who doesn’t want to pay for either a cable subscription or a season pass and just wants to watch it free, I would recommend checking out the College Football page on Reddit. That particular subreddit is known to be one of the best resources for free, online streaming of any kind of college football game.
While this does sound like a sweet deal (and you would only need a Reddit account if you feel like interacting with other redditors on the forum), we urge you to be careful here. This and other free live-streaming sites aren’t exactly the most legal of options and each stream tends to vary in quality.
(4) Cell Phone Provider:
Heading back over to the legal side, you can also try to get in touch with your cellphone provider. Depending on which provider you have, you can receive a package that allows you to stream some ESPN-hosted games.
(5) SEC APP:
The final option that I can present to you are the apps provided by different conferences. Since the Gamecocks are known to play in the SEC conference, you can follow those games with the SEC app. It’s probably the best option of the bunch, with an $8 subscription fee and games that aren’t hosted anywhere else.
Hopefully this list of options provides you with a good starting point on where to watch you favorite team and indulge you love of college football at any place and at any time.
