Yale may have punched their ticket to March Madness 2024 in exhilarating fashion – a Matt Knowling buzzer-beater in the Ivy League championship game – but power conference opponents are a whole different beast. Today's opponents, SEC tournament-winners Auburn, had one of the highest scoring margins in the country this season, something that makes a mockery of their No.15 overall seeding.

Read on and we'll show you how to watch Auburn vs Yale from anywhere with a VPN.

Ahead of tip-off, Auburn are heavy -13.5 point favorites according to DraftKings

The Tigers rank amongst the best in the nation for both 2-point and 3-point defense, conceding an average of 68.5 points per game through the regular season, while scoring 83.5. That's a whopping 15-point winning margin, and that SEC Tournament MVP Johni Broome is being mentioned in the same breath as Zach Edey shows how highly regarded Auburn's center is.

The Bulldogs play largely through their own big man, 7ft forward Danny Wolf, who's going to have to show his teeth if the East regional No.13 seeds are to stand a chance at Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena today. 

Auburn should also be in their groove already. They beat three teams that qualified for March Madness en route to the SEC Tournament title, and did so while playing a swashbuckling brand of basketball.

The winning team will face either No.5-seeded San Diego State or No.12-seeded UAB in the Round of 32. Read on as we explain how to watch Auburn vs Yale live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

Sky Sports has the rights to NCAA basketball in the U.K., with games being shown on its Mix and Arena channels, but at the time of writing it doesn't look like Auburn vs Yale will be televised.

If you're desperate to tune in, you can still follow Auburn vs Yale live streams by using one of the best VPN services, such as NordVPN. Tip-off is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. this evening.

For general March Madness coverage, if you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £18/month to add those channels. 

Whichever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.

Sky Glass is another option. This gives you Sky TV within a 4K TV that has a built-in Dolby Atmos soundbar, and without the need for a dish. Prices start at £14/month for the TV, plus a Sky sub on top of that.

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky subscription, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £11.99 or month-long access for £34.99.
