Oklahoma's football program knows how to handle a road game, and tonight's match against UCLA shouldn't be an exception. But the Bruins are a formidable opponent on home turf, despite a rocky start to the season. 

College football fans won't want to miss a moment of Rose Bowl's live action. And thanks to the various streaming options available, you can watch the Oklahoma vs. UCLA game from just about anywhere, even if you're nowhere near a TV screen. Here's how to watch today's big game.

When can I watch the Oklahoma vs. UCLA game?

Oklahoma vs. UCLA kicks off at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 14. FOX is carrying the game, so if you live in the U.S., all you need is an HDTV antenna to pick up the free broadcast. 

How can I use a VPN to watch the Oklahoma vs. UCLA game?

If you're away from home on Saturday — as in out of the country — a virtual private network, or VPN, can make it seem as if you're surfing the web from your home country. That way, you can still access the same streaming services you would at home.

We've tested plenty of services to find the best overall VPN, and our pick is ExpressVPN. It offers the best mix of performance and customer support, and you really enjoy some savings if you sign up for extended service. Here's how it compares to your top VPN options for the Oklahoma vs. UCLA game.

The services costs $11.95 per month, but you can cut that down to $2.99 per month if you sign up for a multi-year service plan.

TunnelBear (opens in new tab): If you want a VPN just for a one-off event like watching Oklahoma vs. UCLA, consider TunnelBear (opens in new tab). Not only is it easy to use, but it only costs $9.99 a month. Be aware that it's not the best performing VPN we've tested, though.

How can I watch the Oklahoma vs. UCLA live stream?

You can live stream the game on the FOX website or on the FOX NOW app (opens in new tab). So when the Sooners and Bruins are ready to kick off, fire up either option to live stream the game.

One caveat, though: you'll need to be a cable or satellite TV subscriber. FOX requires you to sign in with your TV provider to enjoy its streaming options, so anyone who's cancelled cable will need to consider other options.

How can I live stream the Oklahoma vs. UCLA game without a cable subscription?

Don't despair if you've cut the cable cord. You can still watch Oklahoma vs. UCLA. You'll just need to sign up for a streaming service that includes FOX. The good news is that includes most services, which also offer FOX as part of their basic subscription tiers.
